Director David F. Sandberg Returns to Horror with Cullen Bunn’s ‘The Unsound’

Director David F. Sandberg will return to the horror genre (after a very succesfull foray into the world of super hero films with Shazam!) via a Netflix adaptation of Cullen Bunn and artist Jack T. Cole’s BOOM! Studios mini-series The Unsound.

According to Deadline, the film will  feature plenty of scares, as “…a psychiatrist returns to the insane asylum where her mother once worked and is now a patient, hoping to quell a bloody wave of horror that’s been unleashed. As she descends down the rabbit hole and discovers hard truths about her own past, she comes to understand the hospital is hiding secrets of its own, and perhaps she and her mother have more in common than she realized.”

The script will be written by Skylar James (29 Mole Street) and Sandberg’s frequent collaborator Lotta Losten will produce The Unsound through their new production company Mångata, along with BOOM! Studios’ Ross Richie and Stephen Christy.  Adam Yoelin and James are the executive  producers for the project.

Sandberg’s cinematic debut was the low budget hit Lights Out (which grossed over $148 million at the box office).  Sandberg followed up his success with The Conjuring spin-off Annabelle: Creation, before making one of the only critically acclaimed DC Universe films, Shazam! (the other being Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman).

Bunn is a multiple time HNN Comic Award winner (primarily for his work on Dark Horse Comics’ Harrow County).  The Unsound will be the first film adaptation of his work.  It is also Jack T. Cole’s first adaptation.
