“Inside” producers Franck Ribiere and Verane Frediani, Annette Wullems (“King Kong”) and actor Elijah Wood are set to produce the creature feature “The Home” for Overlook Entertainment.
Eric Vespe and Matt Ward have penned the script which unfolds after a young man is nearly killed during a horrible accident that leaves him physically and emotionally scarred. To recuperate, he is taken to a secluded nursing home where the elderly residents appear to be suffering from delusions.
But after witnessing a violent attack, he soon realizes that the screams behind the walls are caused by more than hallucinations, and the residents are being preyed upon by twisted, monstrous nightmares that lurk within the home itself.
Weta Workshop will do the creature effects for the film with pre-production getting underway next month in New Zealand with filming to kick off in May.
Kristoffer Aaron Morgan helms the project which is currently casting out of the UK and New Zealand.
