Fresh off the success of Wonder Woman, Patty Jenkins is certainly going to be a hot commodity in the coming months. But, she’s eyeing a much smaller project in the meantime.
Jenkins is reportedly working on a project called Riprore for the streaming service Shudder, though there haven’t been many details release about the medium quite yet. It could be a film, web series, or short film — we just don’t know, yet. The story was conceived by Jenkins’ husband, Sam Sheridan, and the project will run on the $4.99 streaming service. No word yet on if Jenkins will direct, or simply produce, the project.
Here’s the official synopsis:
[Riprore] focuses on the heart of gangland Los Angeles, where a gruesome discovery sparks a frenetic homicide investigation, but underneath the surface lurks a darkness that leads to the end of days.
This obviously looks to be a small project on Jenkins’ plate, so it likely wouldn’t preclude her from picking up a major film project when Hollywood comes a callin’. But, the pitch is intriguing, and it’d be interesting to see what Jenkins could do with the idea.
What do you think? Would you watch Jenkins tackle a horror story?
