Brit helmer Adams to debut with Haas starrer

Universal Focus and Working Title 2 have greenlit the horror thriller “Long Time Dead” with Lukas Haas (“The Pearl”) toplining.

British director Marcus Adams will make his feature helming debut on the project. “Dead” concerns a young Londoner and his friends who use a Ouija board to hold a seance, triggering a chain of mysterious deaths that may be caused by an otherworldly force.

Haas’ credits include “Witness,” “Leap of Faith,” “Kiss & Tell,” “Boys” and “Mars Attacks!” He is repped by the Gersh Agency and Lighthouse Entertainment.

Universal Focus received its moniker last week, nine months after Universal Pictures created the inhouse specialty films division.
