We get more directing out of Chris Columbus than we do screenwriting. Looks like he's finally found a project to pen.

Columbus and 1492 Pictures have acquired the screen rights to Michael Koryta's novel, CYPRESS HOUSE. The novel will be adapted by Columbus and he will produce alongside his 1492 partners, Michael Barnathan and Mark Radcliffe.

The story is set along, "an isolated stretch of the Florida Gulf Coast during a devastating 1935 hurricane. The protagonist is a WWI veteran who's plagued by premonitions of death for his traveling companions."

I haven't read the novel, but it's got some damn good reviews if you check out its Amazon page. Dean Koontz approves. I mean, that's gotta do something for you. If not, Stephen King apparently approves of too.

Anyone out there have a chance to read "The Cypress House"?

Extra Tidbit: What do you guys think of Columbus' writing credits thus far?

I'm a big Columbus fan - in the 80's he wrote Gremlins, Young Sherlock Holmes, Goonies, Adventures in Babysitting... I'm gald he's back as a writer!

Well he did write Gemlins & it was suppossed to be much darker then the movie we saw. This sounds like he is going back to those days. He should write this but not direct it, not that im knocking him as a director but he hasnt done much since Harry Potter.
