No official plot yet, but the game followed a girl, armed with an antique camera that's able to capture and damage ghosts, who travels to a haunted mansion in search of her missing brother.
- It's likely that this project had many hiccups along the way, but the final nail in the coffin was the DreamWorks/Paramount split in 2008, leaving a lot of potential projects behind in a development hell or limbo stage.
- The last update on the project was back in 2005, when one of the producers was quoted saying that the script is done and a director was "in talks", with plans to start filming later that year.
- Back in 2003 DreamWorks confirmed that the film was on the "fast-track", with the script being finalized and a director being named shortly, and casting beginning soon after. This of course never happened.
- Staying true to the game, the film was going to be taken place in Japan.
- Colubia Pictures and Senator International partnered for this film.
- Once said to be an intended horror franchise.
- DreamWorks hired writers Robert Fyvolent and Mark R. Brinker (duo behind 2008's Untraceable) adapt the game into film.
- Originally announced somewhere between 2001 and 2003.
- Based on the hit video game with the same name.
