David is primarily interested in Large, Franchiseable Action Features, but is also open to unique horror under $3MM and Near-future, Grounded Sci-fi.
David Harris is a former development executive turned independent producer. He worked at Platinum Studios (COWBOYS & ALIENS, "Jeremiah", DYLAN DOG: DEAD OF NIGHT) and Paramount Pictures (M:I 6 - MISSION IMPOSSIBLE, ARRIVAL, GHOST IN THE SHELL) before turning to producing. In 2017, he produced the $15MM action/thriller SECURITY at Nu Image / Millennium Films, starring Antonio Banderas and Ben Kingsley; and the thriller DESOLATION, directed by David Moscow.
David is looking for an Action feature to supply a partner who is looking for their next action movie. This is the perfect opportunity to pitch an action script to a producer aggressively looking for one to put into development.
As a direct result of these pitch sessions, David hired Stage 32 writer Craig Walendziak to co-write the thriller DESOLATION directed by David Moscow. He has optioned 2 Stage 32 scripts and helped another Stage 32 member get hired for a writing assignment with producer Luke Edwards.
