‘Black Site’ Director Sophia Banks Teams Up With ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Trio – Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: Director Sophia Banks, currently in post-production on her first feature film Black site with Michelle Monaghan, Jason Clarke and Jai Courtney, then teamed up with Hacksaw Ridge Producers Bill Mechanic, Paul Currie and Rick Nicita on Women’s Survival Movie Rat Allie Street.

The film will follow Allie, who receives a ticket to escape her post-apocalyptic city, which is cordoned off by a dome. She and her “street rats,” a pack of Dickensian girls who depend on each other for survival, become the target of all criminals – human or otherwise. Armed with her own intelligence and a skateboard, she must defeat strangers and her own conscience, leaving behind her fellow Street Rats.

Bill Mechanic, Paul Currie and Rick Nicita will produce for Cosmos Pictures. The firm’s objective is to produce a trilogy of films around intellectual property. Production is expected to start in Australia in 2022.

The screenplay comes from newbie Walker McKnight, who won the Academy’s Nicholl Scholarships in 2019.

Mechanic said: “Sophia has already proven herself as an award-winning commercial and short filmmaker and is poised to break into the world of feature films. She is one of the most exciting talents I have had the chance to work with, and I expect her to become Rat Allie Street into a major franchise. I couldn’t be more excited to partner with Sophia and do great things.

Cosmos Pictures, based in Australia, is run by Mechanic, former CEO of 20th Century Fox and producer of films such as Coraline and Hacksaw Ridge; Rick Nicita, former co-chair of CAA and former co-chair of Morgan Creek; and Hacksaw Ridge and Bleeding steel producer Paul Currie.

Black site is the feature debut from Asbury Park Pictures, the joint venture between John Wick and Sicario producer Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road Films and Redbox Entertainment.

The banks are represented by CAA and lawyer Mark Muir. McKnight is represented by Fourward.
