Warner Bros. Hires Writer Simon Barrett and Director Adam Wingard for DEAD SPY RUNNING

Director Adam Wingard and Writer Simon Barrett A Horrible Way to Die writer-director combo Simon Barrett and Adam Wingard are set to adapt Jon Stock‘s novel, Dead Spy Running for Warner Bros. Based on the first book of Stock’s Daniel Marchant trilogy (the initial deal called for a film franchise), Dead Spy Running follows Danny Marchant, a young DJ on the rise in the international world of electronic dance music, forced to go on the run with a beautiful secret agent assigned to watch him after he is framed for his MI6 agent father’s murder. As Danny tries to clear his name and avenge his father’s death, he gets caught in the web of international espionage. Danny must ultimately rise up and defeat a terrorist intent on destroying western civilization in an adventure that takes him through the world to London, Paris, Corsica, New York, and Mumbai. Stephen Gaghan and Jamie Moss have written previous drafts and various names have been attached to direct including McG, Gaghan and Jonathan Levine. Along with Autoerotic and You’re Next, Wingard and Barrett also collaborated with producer Brad Miska to tie the segments together for the long anticipated horror anthology V/H/S, which premiered at 2012 Sundance, with Magnolia buying to release this fall. Spy thriller Dead Spy Running will be no doubt a change of pace for Wingard and Barrett who previously created the horror films.
