Academy Award Winner Tapped to Direct Blumhouse Horror Film StephanieBack in 2002 Akiva Goldsman (Batman Forever, I Am Legend) won an Academy Award for penning A Beautiful Mind, and he’s gone on to executive produce the first three Paranormal Activity sequels. Next up, he plops down in the director’s chair for a horror flick called Stephanie.

Per Deadline, Goldsman has been tapped to direct the Blumhouse-produced tale of supernatural thrills and chills, a story about a little girl with unworldly abilities who was abandoned before a man and woman show up claiming to be her parents, thereby interrupting her mysterious world.

A fall start is being eyed for the film, also produced by Unbroken and The Gotham Group. Jason Blum has a deal with Universal so the pic may go through there.

The story was written by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski, whose script for this film a couple of years ago was noted as one of the best in The Blood List, which (in the vein of the Black List) names the best yet-unproduced scripts in the horror genre.

Also producing is Matt Kaplan through Chapter One (both he and Blum are repped by CAA); Adrienne Biddle is producing and Bryan Bertino is exec producing for Unbroken (repped by UTA); and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein is producing and Eric Robinson and Nate Matteson are exec producers for The Gotham Group (repped by CAA).
