Intrepid Pictures has acquired the supernatural thriller The Fourth Horseman, written by Marshall Uzzle and Perry Fair, according to Variety.

The writing team of F. Paul Benz and Steve Tomlin ("Snow Blind") will rewrite the script.

The Fourth Horseman centers on a young priest's battle to thwart the rise of the fourth horseman of the apocalypse, when three of the horsemen -- War, Pestilence and Famine -- await the birth of their fourth brother so they can fulfill their destiny and bring about the end of times.

Intrepid's upcoming releases include Balls of Fury, opening Wednesday, and The Strangers, to be released by Rogue in early 2008.
