Dan Trachtenberg is becoming a hot Hollywood commodity this year. After the success of his work on the chilling underground bunker tale 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE and the Black Mirror episode "Playtest," is currently negotiating to helm a new Lionsgate flick centered around the life of Harry Houdini.

The project, which was previously in development with Johnny Depp and director Dean Parisot, has finally reappeared after a long hiatus. Based on William Kalush and Larry Sloman's novel The Secret Life of Houdini: The Making of America’s First Superhero:

Houdini is depicted here not just as the master of magic, but as an adventurer and investigator of the occult.

Noah Oppenheim (THE MAZE RUNNER, JACKIE) wrote the script. More details as this story breaks!

I have been saying for a while now that if they ever do a Houdini movie, then Jason Clarke should play him. I mean look at him.
