Ghost Dimension Writers Developing New House on Haunted Hill Remake

Posted on: January 14th, 2017

Despite the film having already been remade in 1999, Warner Bros. have in the works another re-imagining of William Castle’s classic 1959 creeper House on Haunted Hill.

HousePosterThe original film starred Vincent Price as a millionaire who offers up $10,000 to five strangers who agree to spend a night with him and his wife in their spooky mansion. It’s creaky and silly in that knowing William Castle way, but also features a few genuine frights. The 1999 remake starred Geoffrey Rush and Famke Janssen (not to mention horror icon Jeffrey Combs), and was also not without its scares (those CCTC ghosts come to mind), but squandered its potential with that awful, CGI-heavy climax.

The new remake is being developed by Jason Pagan and Andrew Deutschman, the writing duo behind Project Almanac and Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension. The pair are also currently working on Unexplained Phenomenon, which has been picked up by Amblin.
