The Strangers director Bryan Bertino to orchestrate nightmares in This Man

The last horror film Bryan Bertino was involved with was one he wrote and directed, 2008's THE STRANGERS.

Now it looks like Bertino is back. He has made a deal with Ghost House Pictures to write and direct, THIS MAN.

The film will be a thriller about a man who discovers that people he has never met have somehow seen him in their nightmares. The idea comes from this website created by Italian sociologist Andrea Natella. The sociologist started the site to connect others who saw the man in their dreams.

Here's some history background from the site:

"In January 2006 in New York, the patient of a well-known psychiatrist draws the face of a man that has been repeatedly appearing in her dreams. In more than one occasion that man has given her advice on her private life. The woman swears she has never met the man in her life. That portrait lies forgotten on the psychiatrist's desk for a few days until one day another patient recognizes that face and says that the man has often visited him in his dreams. He also claims he has never seen that man in his waking life. The psychiatrist decides to send the portrait to some of his colleagues that have patients with recurrent dreams. Within a few months, four patients recognize the man as a frequent presence in their own dreams. All the patients refer to him as THIS MAN."

"From January 2006 until today, at least 2000 people have claimed they have seen this man in their dreams, in many cities all over the world: Los Angeles, Berlin, Sao Paulo, Tehran, Beijing, Rome, Barcelona, Stockholm, Paris, New Dehli, Moskow, etc."

Bertino recently required the rights to the site. He will produce along with his Unbroken Pictures partner Adrienne Biddle as well as Ghost House principals Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert. Ghost House’s Nathan Kahane will serve as executive producer.

Thank you Bryan Bertino for doing something original.
