David Yarovesky (Brightburn) is directing a film adaptation of J.A. White’s horror-fantasy children’s book Nightbooks for Netflix.

Renamed slightly to Night Books, the film will follow Alex, a boy obsessed with scary stories. After being imprisoned by an evil young witch in her contemporary New York City apartment, he meets Yasmin, who is also trapped there, and learns he must tell a new scary story every night in order to stay alive.

Adapting the script are Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis, the writing duo behind The Curse of La Llorona. Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Winslow Fegley (Come Play), and Lidya Jewett (Good Girls) will star.

Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert are producing Night Books through Ghost House Pictures, with Romel Adam executive producing. MXN Entertainment’s Mason Novick and Michelle Knudsen will produce.
