Ouija Director Stiles White To Write Horror Thriller Remake Forgotten
Posted 2017/06/29 0 0
“Ouija” director Stiles White has come on board the supernatural thriller “Forgotten” for LD Entertainment, Variety has learned.
Today Variety reports that the film studio LD Entertainment has appointed White and his spouse and writing partner Juliet Snowden to pen the script for an English language version of a popular German horror movie called Du Hast Es Versprochen. This directly translates as You Promised It, but it was also known by the English title Forgotten for oversea sales. The plot of the 2012 film concerned two women travelling to a childhood vacation home, which is situated on a remote island. As they rekindle their friendship, they’re haunted by the (literal) ghosts of their past and must confront some dark secrets. This new treatment by White and Snowden is expected to transplant the story to a U.S. location and change plot developments accordingly.
The film is set on a remote island where two women reunite at a childhood vacation home. It explores themes of fear and friendship as the pair find themselves haunted by the ghost of a girl from their past.
Snowden is also executive producing. LD Entertainment will be financing. Producers are Mickey Liddell, Pete Shilaimon, and Jennifer Monroe of LD Entertainment alongside Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films.
White made his directing debut on 2014’s “Ouija,” helming from a script he co-wrote with Snowden. Produced by Jason Blum and Michael Bay, “Ouija” was a major financial success for Universal as it grossed more than $100 million worldwide on a $5 million budget. Stiles and Snowden also teamed on the scripts for “Boogeyman,” “Knowing,” and “The Possession.”
LD Entertainment’s recent projects include “Jackie,” “Megan Leavey,” “The Zookeeper’s Wife,” “Anthropoid,” and “Risen.” The company’s top grosser was 2011’s “The Grey,” starring Liam Neeson.
