Peter Care has come aboard to develop and direct “Town Creek” for Warner Bros. Pictures.
The horror spec script, sold to the studio by former English professor Dave Kajganich, centers on two brothers who experience a haunting.
Care is expected to rework the script with Kajganich and will direct.
Tom Lassally (“Stay”) is producing the pic via his Kustom Entertainment banner with Robyn Meisinger. Executive on the project is Warner Bros. Pictures veepee Dan Lin.
Care most recently directed “The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys.”
He is also attached to direct “Bridge and Tunnel” for New Line Cinema.
Pic, penned by Jonathan Greenberg, Jonathan Lisco and C. Jay Cox and being produced by Tribeca Films, is the story of a suburban 16-year-old who uses his parents’ computer to become a whiz-bang day-trader and multimillionaire.
