Tango Pictures has acquired film rights to the Ben H. Winters’ urban paranoia horror novel “Bedbugs” reports Deadline.
Set in Brooklyn, the story follows the Wendt family as they move in to a new home and suddenly start to encounter strange occurrences.
Susan Wendt begins suffering what she suspects are bedbug bites, but she’s the only one getting bitten and suddenly fears she may be going crazy – until she’s confronted with a more menacing explanation.
“The Innkeepers” and “House of the Devil” writer/director Ti West has been set to write the script. Christina Lurie, Steven Shainberg, and Andrew Lazar will produce.
