Filmmakers Michael Spierig & Peter Spierig (“Daybreakers,” “Predestination”) have been set to direct the supernatural thriller “Winchester” for Diamond Pictures, Blacklab Entertainment and Bullitt Entertainment.
The Spierigs have penned the script which is based on the world famous Winchester Mystery House in San Jose. Sarah Winchester, heir to the Winchester firearms fortune, came to believe she had been cursed by her lethal legacy.
She consulted a medium, who sent her to San Jose in 1884 to begin a massive construction process that took 38 years and resulted in a 160-room Gothic mansion. Brett Tomberlin and Tim McGahan are producing the film which will be shot on the premises of the actual home as well as filming other scenes in Australia.
