Radar Pictures signs The Soska Sisters for BlindSide film adaptation
After nearly a decade of working in the indie horror world, Jen and Sylvia Soska, better known as The Soska Sisters, are partnering with Radar Pictures for a film adaptation based on the hit audio horror adventure game BlindSide, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film, being written and directed by the Twisted Twins and entitled Unseen, will center on a Boston couple as they wake up blind and in a terrifying world they don’t recognize, struggling as they feel their sanity slipping and sensing the presence of a strange new species.
“Unseen is a horror film experience completely unlike any other before it,” the Soskas said in a statement. “This film will truly bring the fear of the unknown to life by putting the focus of storytelling on what you hear.”
The project is currently in development at Radar Picture after the Ted Field-ran production banner landed the film rights to the game, with Field (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Amityville Horror) attached to executive produce.
“I enjoyed what the Soskas did with their twist on Cronenberg’s Rabid,” Field said in a statement. “Their work as writers and directors embraces classic genre elements and adds a fresh, visceral quality. I look forward to seeing what we create with Unseen.”
