Paul Walker Finds Hours For a new thriller

While these days he’s mostly best known for driving very quickly in the majority of the Fast and the Furious franchise entries, Paul Walker has been trying for a change of pace in his other movies. And he’s definitely switching gears for Hours, a new dramatic thriller.

Eric Heisserer, who has been making a name for himself as a horror screenwriter (with credits including the A Nightmare on Elm Street remake, Final Destination 5 and the upcoming Thing prequel), is behind the script and will direct the film. Hours follows a young father (Walker) who must struggle to keep his newborn daughter alive in a devastated, abandoned New Orleans hospital shortly after Hurricane Katrina hits.

Buried producer Peter Safran has rustled up the money to get the movie made, and Heisserer will start the cameras cranking in March next year, shooting in New Orleans itself. Read more at Empire online
