The Hollywood Reporter is going bonkers over Aaron Guzikowski, or at least the news that his feature debut as a writer has been the most sought after thing to grace Hollywood this week. Guzikowski, whose film Prisoners is “said to have echoes of The Silence of the Lambs and Seven,” has already attracted buzz and interest from several top studios and even one of Hollywood’s top stars, Mark Wahlberg.

Wahlberg and Guzikowski should be natural born enemies seeing as Wahlberg hails from Boston and Guzikowski is a Brooklyn man. In fact, I bet Wahlberg is teasing his writer about Alex Rodriguez right now. And now. Probably right about now, too. That being said, the last time someone flew from New York to L.A. and was as quick a sensation as Guzikowski is now, is when it happened on the Wahlberg-produced HBO series “Entourage.”

The story is about a father who takes the disappearance of his daughter and her friend into his own hands. It has shades of Wahlberg’s long-anticipated Lovely Bones which also deals with a set of parents coping with a lost (in this case, deceased) child. Wahlberg’s rep Endeavor indicates that they will try to sign on a director before signing with a studio. Hopefully said director will be a Tampa Bay Rays fan.
