Summit to co-finance The Cold Light of Day

Variety reports that Twilight distributor Summit Entertainment will co-finance and distribute a thriller called The Cold Light of Day, with Intrepid Pictures.

Cold Light of Day was co-written by John Petro and Scott Wiper, and follows a young American whose family is kidnapped while on vacation to Spain, giving him only hours to find them, uncover a government conspiracy and make the connection between their disappearance and his father’s secrets.

The film is expected to begin principal photography on location in Spain in the spring of 2010.

According to the report, Summit and Intrepid are currently seeking a director, however the IMDB page has Wiper pegged as helming the project, but that could have been an earlier direction. Kevin Mann, Matthew Perniciaro and Wiper are apparently attached in a producing capacity.

Cold Light is the second recent addition to Summit’s upcoming slate, after securing rights to the sci-fi film Source Code, with Jake Gyllenhaal in talks to star, alongside Vendome Pictures and Mark Gordon. Duncan Jones, who directed the Sam Rockwell sci-fi thriller Moon, is attached to helm that film.
