Legendary Entertainment, Feigco Entertainment, and Ghost House have joined forces on a feature film adaptation of Maureen Kilmer’s horror novel Suburban Hell.
The film will be produced by Feigco Entertainment’s Paul Feig and Laura Fischer and Ghost House’s Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, with Romel Adam and Jose Cañas overseeing for Ghost House. Joanna Calo (The Bear) has been tapped to write the script.
In the novel, which was published in 2022: “Amy Foster considers herself lucky. After she left the city and moved to the suburbs, she found her place quickly with neighbors Liz, Jess, and Melissa, snarking together from the outskirts of the PTA crowd. One night during their monthly wine get-together, the crew concoct a plan for a clubhouse She Shed in Liz’s backyard—a space for just them, no spouses or kids allowed.
“But the night after they christen the She Shed, things start to feel . . . off. They didn’t expect Liz’s little home-improvement project to release a demonic force that turns their quiet enclave into something out of a nightmare. And that’s before the homeowners’ association gets wind of it.
“Even the calmest moms can’t justify the strange burn marks, self-moving dolls, and horrible smells surrounding their possessed friend, Liz. Together, Amy, Jess, and Melissa must fight the evil spirit to save Liz and the neighborhood . . . before the suburbs go completely to hell.”
