Irish filmmaker Neil Jordan (upcoming The Brave One, The Crying Game) will adapt and direct thriller Heart-Shaped Box for Warner Bros. Pictures, reports Variety.
The film is based on the book of the same name by writer Joe Hill, the son of horror fiction maven Stephen King.
Hill’s spooky storyline revolves around an aging rock star with a penchant for the macabre. He can’t refuse an offer to buy a suit on eBay that’s said to contain a ghost. After the suit arrives, he begins to realize that while he wants the ghost gone, the ghost wants him dead.
Akiva Goldsman is producing.
