Wayward will be partnering with XYZ Films for the next two years on its slate of filmmaker-driven genre features across all platforms.
Rift is an atmospheric thriller which follows two guys whose broken relationship is tested as they are haunted by a supernatural entity awakened by their emotional turmoil and grief. Cameras will roll this winter.
Rift joins Wayward Entertainment’s previously announced Nick Frost and Simon Pegg production Svalta, which we first told you about. XYZ is also teaming with Wayward on Svalta.
Thoroddsen, who recently wrapped filming on The Piper for Millennium Media, will return to write and direct Rift.
