Child’s Play remake’s Lars Klevberg to direct Be My Eyes for Sam Raimi

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

With the "nature run amok" movie CRAWL (watch it HERE), producers Sam Raimi and Craig Flores gave Paramount a major success – the film earned $92 million at the global box office, on a production budget of $13.5 million. So it makes sense that Paramount has tasked Raimi and Flores with bringing them another genre picture. This time the project is called BE MY EYES, and it's set to be directed by Lars Klevberg of POLAROID and the CHILD'S PLAY remake.

BE MY EYES was written by Jud Cremata, who recently made his feature directorial debut with LET'S SCARE JULIE. Jeff Buhler, who worked on the PET SEMATARY remake, is currently doing a rewrite. The story follows 

a law student who volunteers to receive anonymous video calls from blind people through an app to help them "see" and do simple tasks. One night, she is pulled into a race against time when she gets a terrifying call from a blind woman in the midst of an abduction.

That sort of sounds like a twist on the Brad Anderson / Halle Berry thriller THE CALL, which is a movie that I really enjoyed, so I'm totally on board to watch BE MY EYES. Well, it's a must-see for me from the moment Raimi's name is mentioned in connection with it, but I'm also intrigued by the story.

Flores will be producing the film through his company Bread & Circuses Entertainment, while Raimi produces through his company Ghosthouse Pictures. Ghosthouse's Romel Adam and Paramount's Ashley Brucks are overseeing the project. Bob Sobhani serves as executive producer.
