Primate: Horror Film Produced by Former Head of DC Films, Taps CODA Actor Troy Kotsur

Former head of DC Films, Walter Hamada, is producing Primate, a horror film going into production at Paramount. Today, Variety broke the news that the production is moving forward and has found at least some of its cast.

We know nothing about the plot of the movie other than it’s a horror flick with a title that suggests the motif of apes may be involved. We do know, however, that it will star Troy Kotsur, who won an Oscar for his performance in CODA as the deaf father (pictured above) of a hearing girl who wants to have a career as a singer. Kotsur also appeared in The Mandalorian and helped develop the Tusken sign language also used in The Book of Boba Fett.

It will be directed by Johannes Roberts, whose previous credits include directing Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City and the “Suicide Bid” segment in V/H/S/99. The script comes from Roberts and Ernest Riera.

Primate is part of Hamada’s first-look deal with Paramount, making him, according to Deadline “the architect of Paramount’s mainstream horror genre pod, with the mission to release several low- to mid-budget films per year across theatrical and streaming.”

As such, this is just one of Hamada’s projects with Paramount. Another is the live-action, R-rated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin, based on the comic of the same name.
