Meanwhile, the next two are intended to be a psychological horror film titled "The Summoner" and urban action movie "." The former has already tapped Victor Salva to helm with Matthew Sand penning the script while the latter has its screenplay written by Alex Tse.

All of these three projects, alongside other twelve, will be fully financed by Silver who also gains sole approval to greenlight the works plus full creative control on them.
