    Benjamin Walker Toplines Thriller ‘Shimmer Lake’; Oren Uziel Directs From His Black List Script

    The film from Footprint Features and Writ Large starts production late this month in Toronto. Britton Rizzio and Adam Saunders are producing Shimmer Lake, with Dan Bekerman, Steve Eddy and Youmi N. Ma as exec producers. The Exchange will be selling international rights at AFM next month.

    Uziel, repped by WME and Writ Large, also penned the horror comedy Freaks Of Nature, which Sony opens October 30, and has Overnight in the works at Disney and the J.J. Abrams-produced God Particle at Paramount. Walker, who starred as the Great Emancipator in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, next appears in Ron Howard’s period drama In The Heart Of The Sea. He is with WME and Inspire Entertainment.
