PROJECT DETAILS
  • Apparently the project was going to start production in a few weeks, but the producers were displeased with the recent rewrite of the script by director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo and Scott Z. Burns (Contagion). Reports indicate that the revised script made dramatic changes — including the title, the characters and the action — so as to render the project unrecognizable. The studio is going back to the original script by Chad and Carey Hayes as they continue to develop the project and search for a new director. (9/21/16)
  • Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later, Intruders) was originally set to direct, but dropped out of the project after the producers were displeased with his recent rewrite of the script.
  • Budgeted at an estimated $17-million.
  • Written by brothers Chad and Carey Hayes (duo behing The Conjuring films).
  • This is reportedly a passion project for producer Steven Spielberg, who "really wanted to make a scary film."
  • The original short story that this is based on has been adaptated on to film over a dozen times.
  • Described as a "gothic ghost story."
  • Reportedly inspired by the 1898 Henry James gothic ghost story The Turn Of The Screw.
