Writer/director Osgood Perkins (The Blackcoat’s Daughter) has been hired to rewrite and direct the horror thriller A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS for Focus Features.
The film is based on the novel by Paul Tremblay.
The film tells the story of Merry, who 20 years after her family was publicly consumed and destroyed by her teenage sister’s mysterious and horrific affliction, is approached by a journalist to tell the story in her own words. She reveals a far more terrifying version of what really happened in her childhood home.
Robert Downey Jr. and his wife Susan Downey are producers on the project.
Perkins directed The Blackcoat’s Daughter and I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House. He will rewrite the draft penned by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowsky.
