Patrick Brice's Corporate Animals recently made a splash at the Sundance Film Festival (read Heather Wixson's review here), and the filmmaker behind Creep and Creep 2 already has his next project lined up: an adaptation of Stephanie Perkins' horror novel There's Someone Inside Your House.
Deadline reports that Brice will direct the film adaptation of Perkins' 2017 horror novel for Netflix. Brice will direct from a screenplay written by Henry Gayden (Shazam!, Zombie Roadkill), with James Wan’s Atomic Monster and Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps producing the movie.
The adaptation is expected to be "a combination of two different beloved teenage genres: the slashers that came to prominence in the ’80s and ’90s and the character-driven coming of age classics a la John Hughes’ films and American Graffiti."
Although the film's premiere date on the streaming service has yet to be revealed, There's Someone Inside Your House is expected to begin filming this autumn, and we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed. In the meantime, for those unfamiliar with There's Someone Inside Your House, we have a look at the cover art and synopsis below (via Amazon and Penguin Random House):
"It’s been almost a year since Makani Young came to live with her grandmother in landlocked Nebraska, and she’s still adjusting to her new life. And still haunted by her past in Hawaii.
Then, one by one, the students of her small town high school begin to die in a series of gruesome murders, each with increasing and grotesque flair. As the terror grows closer and the hunt intensifies for the killer, Makani will be forced to confront her own dark secrets.
Stephanie Perkins, bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss, returns with a fresh take on the classic teen slasher story that’s fun, quick-witted, and completely impossible to put down."
