What’s Next for Nightmare, Thing Screenwriter?


Haunted houses and something Inhuman

A pair of updates on screenwriter Eric Heisserer who did a bit of writing on Universal’s upcoming The Thing prequel and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

It appears Heisserer’s The Dionaea House – based on his online tale – is taking on a new moniker during its development for film. The adaptation is now being called The Occupants, fitting for a story about haunted houses.

The writer is also still hard at work on Inhuman which has him working alongside producer Taka Ichise and Roy Lee producing. Ringu‘s Hideo Nakata is supposed to direct and the script concerns a real-life murder case. Regency, Hideon and Vertigo are shepherding the film.
