Oculus' Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy explore the minds of the dead in Diver

While we are all still waiting patiently to check out Mike Flanagan's upcoming haunter OCULUS, the director is already looking ahead at his next big project as Deadline reports that the writer/director and Intrepid Pictures’ Trevor Macy are reteaming on the supernatural thriller DIVER, setting a summer production start.

Flanagan is quickly making a name for himself in the genre with films like OCULUS, SOMNIA and now DIVER all poised to give us nightmares in the very near future. We don't know much about DIVER just yet but it does sound quite a bit different from what we've seen the director do thus far. It's all about exploring the minds of the dead and the terrible force they set free while doing it—sort of has a FLATLINERS feel to it. Here's what it's about:

DIVER revolves around a secret project based in New Orleans that involves a team sent to enter the minds of the recently dead to experience their final memories in order to solve the most heinous crimes. When the Divers breach the barrier between the living and the dead, they must contend with the supernatural force they unleash.

Flanagan will direct a script by Diane Ademu-John and Carter Blanchard with revisions by Flanagan and writing partner Jeff Howard. Macy will produce the film, with Marc D. Evans, Asha Kurian, and Julie Wilke also serving in various producing capacities. We'll keep you posted on this one as we get it!
