‘Marianne’ Director To Lead Horror Film ‘Cobweb’ For Lionsgate

A filmmaker who made his horror reputation with the eerie French series Marianne has signed on to direct a new movie for Lionsgate.

Samuel Bodin will helm the horror-thriller Cobweb, which boasts a screenplay by Chris Thomas Devin, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

Details on the new film–including a production schedule and cast–are not known at this writing, but the storyline is described as a tale of a boy “whose parents have always told him the voices he hears in the walls of his house are just his imagination.”

But, as one might expect in a horror movie, the boy soon learns that these voices may be all-too real as he goes on “an unnerving quest to discover what’s real and what’s not.”

The movie will be produced by Roy Lee of Vertigo (The RingIt), Jon Berg (Wonder Woman), Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg of Point Grey (This Is The End) and James Weaver.

In addition, Andrew Childs of Vertigo and Josh Fagen of Point Grey will act as executive producers. Jim Miller and Meredith Wieck will oversee the project for Lionsgate.

Marianne–created and directed by Bodin–ran for just one season, covering eight episodes, on Netflix before being cancelled in January 2020.

The show–which starred Victoire Du Bois–followed Emma, a young novelist, who realizes the characters she writes about actually exist in the real world.
