Brett and Drew Pierce, the filmmaking duo behind The Wretched, are writing and directing a new supernatural horror movie for Screen Gems called Room 428.
Deadline notes that details of the film’s plot are being kept under wraps. However, we do know that The Black Phone’s Scott Derickson and C. Robert Cargill are producing alongside Sherryl Clark for Crooked Highway. Scott Strauss and Giselle Johnson will oversee the project for Screen Gems.
The Wretched blew up the box office in 2020 thanks to its popularity at drive-in theatres in the U.S. The film follows a teenage boy who starts to suspect that a witch is wearing the skin of his next-door neighbour.
