James Wan, New Line Team Up On New Horror Film

by Thomas Tuna

Acclaimed filmmaker James Wan is bringing his unique vision back to the Silver Screen with an as-yet-untitled horror feature.

Wan’s Atomic Monster Productions will produce the film–alongside Michael Clear and Judson Scott–for New Line Cinema, with Bishal Dutta on board to direct from a script by Joshua Rollins, as reported by Deadline.

The untitled horror feature is shrouded in secrecy at this early stage, but it is reported that the original project will be set in a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles.

New Line and Atomic Monster have an impressive list of successes to draw on–including the Conjuring franchise, Lights Out and Annabelle Comes Home. The six films in the blockbuster Conjuring series have accounted for nearly $2 billion in worldwide box office receipts.

This movie will be the major studio directorial debut for Dutta, whose short Inferno caught the attention of both Atomic Monster and New Line. Rollins is an established playwright; his script Worldbreaker has been optioned by Amasia Entertainment and Dark Castle.

Wan’s most recent effort, as reported here in Horror News Network, is serving as executive producer on the upcoming eight-part Netflix horror series Archive 81. The filmmaker is best known, of course, for such big-screen successes as the SawInsidious and Conjuring horror franchises, as well as helming a Fast & Furious installment and DC Comics’ mega-hit Aquaman.
