The Grudge writer Stephen Susco will make his feature directorial debut in "White" for Rogue Pictures.
Now trying his hand at directing, screenwriter Stephen Susco is set to mark the venture through "White", a big screen adaptation of a novella included within author Tim Lebbon's "White and Other Tales of Ruin."
Produced under Rogue Pictures, the project is an apocalyptic tale focusing on a group of people who get trapped in a blizzard then systematically being picked off by mysterious phantoms. No details yet on the cast lineup, but it is revealed that former Miramax exec Michael Zoumas will produce via his Zoom Entertainment.
Susco, a 1999 graduate of USC School of Cinema-Television, previously wrote the scripts of "The Grudge" and its sequel, "The Grudge 2" which is currently showing in U.S theaters. His upcoming writing stints are those for horror thriller flicks "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Dibbuk Box."
