Former Focus Features exec VP of production Amy Kaufman will produce an untitled thriller for Rogue Pictures and will signify the feature film directorial debut of Victor Garcia. Variety reports that the movie is based on a pitch by Garcia. The story is about a girl who wakes up from a 15-year coma and finds herself in a haunted hospital ward.
Kaufman left Focus Features (the parent company of Rogue Pictures) last year to start her own production company, the Gotham-based Primary Prods. Underground Films' Nick Osborne and Trevor Engelson are exec producing; William Lowery will co-produce.
Garcia previoulsy directed the Spanish-language short film El Ciclo which has received several film festival honors.
Craig Gerber will write the script and has written and directed two shorts films Hang Time and The Endless Bread.
