Dark Castle hosts ‘The Apparition’

Todd Lincoln to write, direct haunted house pic

Dark Castle is revisiting the haunted house genre, pairing with Todd Lincoln, who will write and direct “The Apparition” for Joel Silver’s genre label.

Details of the project, an original idea developed by Lincoln, Dark Castle exec Alex Heineman and producer Daniel Alter, is being kept under wraps, but the plot is said to be based on true events.

“Apparition” marks the second project Lincoln and Alter have conjured up at Warner Bros.-based Dark Castle over the past month, after setting up sci-fi thriller “The Nye Incidents” there. That pic will be based on Whitley Strieber and Craig Spector’s graphic novel.

It’s also one of the first projects Dark Castle has picked up since former Rogue Pictures prexy Andrew Rona was tapped prexy of Silver Pictures and co-prexy of the genre label late last year.

Dark Castle has previously ventured into haunted house territory with “Thirteen Ghosts” and “House on Haunted Hill.”

Silver, Rona and Heineman will produce through Dark Castle with Alter. Final producing credits are still being worked out.

Alter also has an adaptation of “Johnny Quest” set up at WB with producer Adrian Askarieh. Duo collaborated on “Hitman” at Fox. Alter and Askarieh also have adaptations of the Devil’s Due books “Hack/Slash” and “Lost Squad” set up at Relativity-owned Rogue.

Lincoln, who established himself as a musicvideo and commercials helmer, had previously been attached to a remake of “The Fly” at Fox.
