Scott Derrickson boards supernatural thriller

Scott Derrickson (“The Day the Earth Stood Still”) has been tapped by Lakeshore Entertainment to direct supernatural suspense thriller “The Living.”

Lakeshore topper Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi will develop and produce, while Paul Harris Boardman also serves as producer. Logline’s being kept under wraps. Pic is based on a pitch from Derrickson and Boardman.

Project will reunite Derrickson and Boardman with Lakeshore after their collaboration on 2005’s “The Exorcism of Emily Rose,” which the pair co-wrote and Derrickson directed. “Emily Rose” grossed $145 million worldwide. 

Derrickson most recently directed “The Day the Earth Stood Still” for Fox with Boardman producing. He’s also attached to helm “The Substitute,” a remake of the Danish thriller for Spooky Pictures, the recently launched banner from Sam Raimi’s genre label Ghost House (Daily Variety, Oct. 2).
