Hammer Films is on a roll, announces The Quiet Ones as next feature

Hammer Films is back baby!

After doing tremendous business with THE WOMAN IN BLACK this past weekend, we learned earlier today that the famed British film studio had acquired Ian Fried's Blacklisted script GASLIGHT. Thing is, before they put that film into production, they'll be pushing and pumping John Pogue's new horror yarn THE QUIET ONES. The film, currently casting, will shoot in South Africa this May. Pre-sales will be sought at the EFM this week.

Also written by Pogue (QUARANTINE 2, seen right), The Quiet Ones, inspired by true events, tells the story of an unorthodox professor who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist. Based on the theory that paranormal activity is caused by human negative energy, the rogue scientists perform a series of tests on a young patient, pushing her to the edge of sanity. As frightening occurrences begin to take place with shocking and gruesome consequences, the group quickly realizes they have triggered a force more terrifying and evil than they ever could have imagined.

About the project, Pogue had this to say:

"The Quiet Ones tells the story of an unorthodox professor who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist. Based on the theory that paranormal activity is caused by human negative energy, the rogue scientists perform a series of tests on a young patient, pushing her to the edge of sanity. As frightening occurrences begin to take place with shocking and gruesome consequences, the group quickly realizes they have triggered a force more terrifying and evil than they ever could have imagined."

At last blush, we heard the batshit bonkers Nic Cage was offered a role in THE QUIET ONES. No word yet if he'll accept, but damn how awesome would that be? We can still dream, can't we?

Extra Tidbit: Don't confuse this with Amel Figueroa's 2010 film, also called THE QUIET ONES.
