According to The Hollywood Reporter, first-time scribes Jim Agnew and Sean Keller have sold the horror spec Damned to Fried Films/the Pantry, the production company founded by producers Rob Fried and Dan Keston.
The story revolves around an all-American family that survives a plane crash only to descend into a backwoods nightmare of demon-fearing religious zealots. Fried and Keston are in postproduction on Weapons, a film about violence and racial tension in a suburban town.
The film stars Nick Cannon and Paul Dano and was written and directed by Independent Spirit Award nominee Adam Bhala Lough. Fried's producing credits include New Line Cinema's The Man and Universal Pictures' upcoming Man of the Year, directed by Barry Levinson. Agnew and Keller are repped by Danny Sherman at Principal Entertainment and attorney Mark Temple.
