NISPEL’S EQUATION: ‘CRANK’ + ‘TAKEN’ = PACEMAKER

Wednesday, April 22 by

According to Production Weekly, Marcus Nispel, director of both the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the 13th remakes, is attached to direct Pacemaker, written by Lars Jacobsen.  Jacobsen’s only other credits are as writer/director/producer of Baby Blues, a psychological thriller about post-mortem depression, and as writer of C.O.D., in development at Dreamworks.  

Pacemaker is described as "Crank meets Taken," which unfortunately results in the portmanteau Tank.  Also, with a name like Pacemaker, it conjures up a "Crank meets Cocoon" pitch line.  What?  You’d see that?  And you’d like to see the promotional one-sheet?  Right now?  In the room?  So glad you asked…
