“It Follows” and the upcoming “Under the Silver Lake” director David Robert Mitchell has been set to pen the script for a feature film remake of the horror short “They Hear It” for Legendary Entertainment.
Julian Terry, the writer-director behind the original short film, will helm the feature with Mitchell only coming onboard to pen and produce.
Said to evoke both “The Birds” and “IT,” the story follows an ominous presence that stalks the children of a small town by emitting a mysterious noise called ‘The Sound’ that attracts younger people.
Alex Heineman and Andrew Rona will produce. Terry’s short “The Nurse” won the grand prize for The Conjuring Universe Short Film Contest.
