You can thank a North Providence native for the fact that your next movie watching experience will be so spine tingling it’ll leave you fearing the dark. Screenplay writer Chris Sparling is back with a new much buzzed about psychological thriller, ATM. Some might remember him from his work in the 2010 dramatic thriller Buried, starring Ryan Reynolds, which received an award for Best Original Screenplay by the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures. The much-anticipated ATM,which tells the story of three coworkers that end up in a desperate fight for their lives during a routine stop at an ATM late one evening, is set to follow the same path. Sparling is also making his feature directing debut this summer with supernatural drama Falling Slowly, which he plans to shoot in both Los Angeles and Rhode Island. Until then, look for ATM, to be released by IFC films on March 2 for video on demand and digital download. Its theatrical release is on April 6.
