Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Earlier this year it was reported that Oz Perkins (THE BLACKCOAT'S DAUGHTER) would be taking the helm on a feature adaptation of author Paul Tremblay's horror novel A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS. And if Trembly wasn't on enough of a role, today we have news that another one of this books THE CABIN AT THE END OF THE WORLD will become a feature as well.

FilmNation just snatched up the rights to Trembly's 2018 psychological horror and suspense novel and screenwriting duo Steve Desmond and Michael Sherman will be penning the screenplay. Desmond and Sherman are best known for their spec script, HARRY'S ALL NIGHT HAMBURGERS selling to Warner Bros. in a bidding war last month and their previous screenplay ORB making the 2016 Black List and topping the 2016 Blood List.
