April 22 2013
Weintraub clients John and Drew Dowdle will co-write the upcoming microbudget thriller: “As Above, So Below” for Legendary Pictures.
According to Variety, the film will be set in the catacombs beneath Paris where two archeologists look for hidden treasure. Sources say the film would be set in the $5-$10 million range, which stretches the boundaries of what constitute a micro-budget picture, a team popularized for films in the under-$1 million budget range.
The Dowdle brothers have also teamed on the following films: Full Moon Rising, The Dry Spell, The Poughkeepsie Tapes, Quarantine and Devil.
