Wayfare Entertainment

Diana In Tiara

Wayfare Entertainment is still a relatively young production company with only three films under its belt (Sanctum, It’s Kind of a Funny Story and Ondine), and so far they haven’t made anything particularly dangerous. According to Deadline Hollywood, that may change. The production house has picked up a spec script called Inquest which revisits Princess Diana’s tragic 1997 vehicular death by framing it as a potential political conspiracy and viewing it through the eyes of a private investigator hired to uncover the truth. The script comes from first-timer Sam Cohen (which is apparently a pen name for Josh Simon, a development executive who used to be at Disney). No matter how polished, this project is undoubtedly going to cause some furor. Not only was Princess Diana beloved, her death was a modern touchstone that’s still felt by many. There were questions raised at the time, and like all modern, high-profile horrors, conspiracy theorists came out of the woodwork. To even appear to give those ideas credence will bother more than a few people, but it might just make for a thrilling plot. Wayfare might just develop a reputation after this one.

The Best Short Films

Why Watch? There are few things as creepy as British people talking about science, which is just one small reason why Matt Westrup‘s The Gate is so damned chilling. It features some gruesome creature design and some solid CGI – especially for an independent outfit. Plus, it’s based on reality. That’s right. Our own DNA is a mysterious, messed-up jungle of unused genes that are waiting to mutate and strike. Enjoy your weekend! It was announced last week that Wayfare Entertainment would be financing a feature version, and after checking it out, it’s easy to see why. What will it cost? Only 8 minutes. Skip Work.
