Idris Elba to topline thriller Beast
Will Packer and James Lopez will produce through their Will Packer Productions.
Actor Idris Elba is set to feature in Beast, a survival thriller to be directed by Baltasar Kormakur. According to reports, the Universal Pictures' project is based on an original idea by Jaime Primak-Sullivan. Ryan Engle, who worked on the Dwayne Johnson-starrer Rampage, has penned the script. The story details are being kept under wraps, but it is described to be in similar vein as The Shallows. While the 2016 survival thriller saw Blake Lively as a surfer stalked by a shark, Beast will feature a lion as the predatory antagonist.
Will Packer and James Lopez will produce through their Will Packer Productions. Kormakur, known for making survival thrillers like Iceland's Oscar 2013 entry The Deep, Everest and Adrift, will produce through his RVK Studios.
