It’s been a while since last we heard of anything from Paranormal Activity 2 director Todd “Kip” Williams, but that’s all about to change as he’s jumping behind the camera for the latest horror adaptation that’s looking to bring the spooky.
According to Deadline Mike Medavoy has optioned the Christopher Buehlman literary horror novel Those Across the River. Medavoy is producing with Akiva Goldsman’s Weed Road, and Tod “Kip” Williams is attached to write the script and direct the film.
The book is about a small Southern town in Georgia in 1935. A WWI veteran moves there with his new wife after they inherit a home passed down through his family. He intends to write a book about his grandfather, an evil plantation owner, but soon realizes that there are some crazy things going on, including residents that are being killed and eaten. It’s the Depression, and the horror begins after the town abandons a practice of sending two pigs each month across the river, though they’ve never figured exactly what happened to those animals.
Look for more soon!
