Fox Wins Bidding War Over Neil Cross’ Monster Thriller Inside

Deadline reported today that 20th Century Fox outbid a number of rival studios to acquire Neil Cross’ first feature film Inside.

Cross is best known for the critically acclaimed BBC detective series Luther (starring Idris Elba).  Inside “…will be produced by the Picture Company’s Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman. Fox expands its relationship with Cross, Rona and Heineman, who are in the middle of the Escape From New York remake that recently got Robert Rodriguez aboard to direct. Mike Ireland is the Fox exec on that project and will serve in that role on the new project.”

The film will be a departure from Cross’ reality-based crime drama, and will instead focus on ” …a CDC-like secure facility that houses dangerous artifacts that include mythological creatures. The protagonist is a wronged man who finds himself behind bars along with the menagerie of creatures.”

Cross has dabbled in horror in the past however, co-writing the screenplay to 2013’s Mama with Andres Muschietti.  The same year, Cross also wrote two episodes of the BBC’s long-running sci-fi series Doctor Who. 

Stay tuned to Horror News Network for further details on this project as they happen.
