Paramount picks up Shhh, in the vein of The Ring and Fallen

Fallen Denzel Washington

Paramount Players, a division of Paramount that's meant to focus on "contemporary properties", has a few genre projects coming our way, including SINISTER 2 director Ciaran Foy's "boy in a haunted clinic" film ELI, a movie based on the kids show Are You Afraid of the Dark?, another based on the Creepy Crawlers toy, and the Mary J. Blige police brutality horror story BODY CAM. Now they're setting up another horror offering, having acquired a pitch titled SHHH.

Gustavo Cooper is attached to direct SHHH and will be writing the screenplay with Ben Powell. Details on the story they crafted are being kept under wraps, but we do know that it's 

set in a high school and in the vein tonally of The Ring and the Denzel Washington supernatural thriller Fallen.

THE RING and FALLEN (pictured above)... So some kind of curse and/or possession shenanigans?

Cooper has experience directing supernatural stories, having made the 2013 film THE DEVIL INCARNATE and 2015's JUNE. Powell's previous writing credits include SATANIC (2006), THE AGGRESSION SCALE, and THE SAND.

Ace Entertainment's Matt Kaplan will be producing SHH, with Matt Dines overseeing the project for Paramount Players.
