Following the hit success of "The Devil Inside", director/writer William Brent Bell and screenwriter Matthew Peterman are ready to make another potential hellraiser film. The duo have been tapped to work on a yet-to-be-titled horror movie developed at Sierra/Affinity, which also produced "Shark Night 3D".
The untitled Bell/Peterman project is scheduled to kick off filming in Romania this April. On an announcement released on Wednesday, January 11, Sierra/Affinity stated that the upcoming film "offers a similar style of filmmaking the team brought to 'The Devil Inside' applied to another classic horror mythology."
Plot details of the upcoming film are still kept under tight wraps, but they are expected to be unveiled during the 2012 European Film Market in Berlin taking place in February. Serving as the producers of the new horror film are Steven Schneider ("Paranormal Activity", "Insidious"), Morris Paulson ("The Devil Inside") along with Peterman himself.
Of working with Bell and Peterman, Sierra/Affinity CEO Nick Meyer said, "From day one we have been huge fans of this filmmaking team and the way they have crafted a unique movie-going experience with 'The Devil Inside'."
"These are filmmakers we know and trust and they bring an original voice and style to our next project that will once again introduce audiences to a new expectation of what one can define as a genre film," he continued.
Aside from this untitled horror movie project, Bell and Peterman have also sealed a deal with Warner Bros. Pictures to make "The Vatican". The film is said to have the same "religious horror genre" as "The Devil Inside" and merge a traditional narrative with "found footage" sequences.
