Stone Village Picks Up Josh Dobkin and Sean Wathen's The Field

Endless Field

The production company Stone Village Pictures, which was recently behind Love in the Time of Cholera and Turistas, has acquired a concept thriller called The Field, authored by TV support staff Josh Dobkin ("Scrubs") and Sean Wathen ("House"). The thriller is set in an endless field, where a group of strangers wake up with seemingly random items and must find a way out. Adding a taste of horror is the production company Benderspink (The Ring series, The Ruins), which will also executive produce. Not much else is known of the project at this time, nor is there insight into Dobkin and Wathen's foray into film.

Those involved right now lead me to believe The Field has a B-class ceiling at best. And if I might speculate, the puzzle story may have a medical/hallucination angle to it. It's just a guess, but both scribes do work on hospital-centric shows -- "House" is investigative of abnormal ailments, after all -- and how else does one confab an "endless field." Sounds a bit like being lost in the land of one's conscience, perhaps surreal and confusing like Davy Jones' locker in Pirates of the Caribbean. More on this new-born thriller as we get it, but for now we'll hope that it finds a good director and a good budget. Maybe it could turn out great?

    Doesn't sound too bad, but can't imagine it being longer than 30 minutes.

    This sounds cool. If it does indeed have a b-class ceiling, it seems like the type of film that might benefit from it. It's not like you need a big budget to shoot in a really big field, nor does it sound like a special-effects laden film. So a low budget may just force it to rely on good filmmaking.
