Drive Director Helms “The Bringing”

Filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn (“Drive,” “Only God Forgives”) is in early negotiations to helm the horror thriller “The Bringing” for Sony Pictures.

The story is based on the macabre history of L.A.’s Cecil Hotel. The latest incident involves Elisa Lam, a woman who was found dead in a water tank on the hotel’s roof.

Security footage captures her behaving strangely in a hotel elevator, and the story follows a man investigating her death.

Brandon and Phillip Murphy penned the script while Matt Tolmach and Daniela Cristina Cretu are set to produce.
