Mena Suvari stars in Daniel Farrand's The Haunting of Nicole Brown Simpson

Day of the Dead Mena Suvari

Earlier this year, we caught word that HALLOWEEN: THE CURSE OF MICHAEL MYERS screenwriter Daniel Farrands was directing a project that sounded in very poor taste to me: THE HAUNTING OF SHARON TATE, which stars Hilary Duff as the pregnant actress and apparently shows her experiencing paranormal activity in the days leading up to her murder at the hands of the Manson Family. 

As if that weren't questionable enough, it turns out the Sharon Tate film is just the first chapter in "an anthology of true-story supernatural films", and this series sounds like it's going to reach another level of cringe-inducing with the second chapter, THE HAUNTING OF NICOLE BROWN SIMPSON.

Yeah... Seriously.

Farrands will be directing THE HAUNTING OF NICOLE BROWN SIMPSON, with Mena Suvari (pictured above in the 2008 DAY OF THE DEAD remake) as the title character.

The synopsis: 

Shortly after ending her marriage to famed football star OJ Simpson, Nicole sought refuge in the company of her inner circle. When her intimate relationship with interior designer Faye Resnick soured, Nicole crossed paths with an enigmatic handyman named Glen Rogers. Moving from one clandestine relationship to another, Nicole began a brief but torrid affair with Glen before quickly discovering his darker side. After Nicole witnesses Glen carrying on a bizarre conversation with an unseen entity named “Charlie,” he attacks her and flees into the night.

After Glen’s sudden disappearance, Nicole’s life goes into a tailspin. She begins hearing and seeing things that aren’t there.  A dark apparition haunts her at every turn. Alone in her house one night, she is brutally attacked by a violent unseen force.  Increasingly paranoid and concerned for her safety, Nicole seeks the help of the police, her therapist, and even a renowned psychic, but they provide no comfort.

On the evening of June 12th, 1994, Nicole makes the decision to confront whatever negative energy is consuming her life, unaware that the stage has already been set for her dark date with destiny.

Voltage Pictures is currently presenting THE HAUNTING OF NICOLE BROWN SIMPSON to potential distributors at the Cannes Film Festival.

I'm really not into the idea of this anthology at all, but it sounds like we're in for a number of these ghost stories crafted around real Hollywood murders.
