Sony teams up with Escape Room director for untitled thriller
According to Deadline, Escape Room director Adam Robitel has set up his next project — an untitled supernatural thriller — at Sony Pictures with producer Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert via Ghost House productions. Robitel will direct the film from a screenplay by Gavin Heffernan.
Project details were not available other than the aforementioned notes that it will be a supernatural thriller.
“Ghost House is thrilled to partner again with Sony Pictures, and to work for the first time with the enormously talented Adam Robitel. From the moment Adam and Gavin pitched me their vision for the movie, I knew that this would be an exciting and terrifying experience for the audience,” said Raimi.
Robitel directed a number of short documentaries before hitting the big time with the surprise hit Escape Room. He is also attached to direct Escape Room 2, which is currently in pre-production.
Raimi recently produced the horror film Crawl, which has grossed over $32 million at the U.S. box office since its release on July 14.
