Mike Flanagan directs supernatural pic for Intrepid

Dr. Who” star Karen Gillan is set to star in the supernatural pic “Oculus” for Intrepid.

Mike Flanagan will helm the pic that follows a woman whose life was destroyed as a child after her parents were murdered and brother was pegged with the crime, even though she believes the crime was committed by a supernatural force.

Ten years later, the brother is ready to move on but the sister is determined to prove that something else murdered their parents.

Flanagan co-wrote the script with Jeff Howard.

Trevor Macy and Marc D. Evans will produce and are fully financing through Intrepid. Anil Kurian will executive produce for Intrepid.

FilmDistrict is handling domestic distribution while Focus Features Intl. is handling foreign sales. Production is set to start this fall.

Besides “Dr. Who,” Gillan was most recently seen in the indie “Outcast.”

She is repped by UTA and Troika.
