Bird in flight pattern with ‘Daughter’

Moews to produce from scipt by Yakin, Ricourt

NEW YORK — Antonia Bird has been attached to direct suspenser “Abraham’s Daughter” from horror house Raw Nerve, the genre division of Gotham-based production stable GreeneStreet Films.

Scripted by Boaz Yakin and Edward Ricourt, chiller concerns a recently widowed woman who begins having horrifying visions of murdered children, prompting her to dig deep into the past of her small town to discover a gruesome conspiracy.

Lauren Moews will produce with Raw Nerve principals Yakin, Eli Roth and Scott Spiegel. Moews previously produced Lions Gate horror hit “Cabin Fever,” which was directed by Roth. GreeneStreet Intl. will handle worldwide sales.

“The story of ‘Abraham’s Daughter’ developed in my mind after I read a series of articles about a rash of cases of satanic ritual abuse that were being reported around the country,” said Yakin. “This seemed to me fertile ground for a ’70s-style horror film.”

Bird previously directed controversial Miramax release “Priest,” crime thriller “Face” and Fox’s cannibalism thriller “Ravenous.”

Formed in 2003 and announced during last year’s Cannes Film Festival, Raw Nerve is in post on its debut production, “2001 Maniacs,” a remake of Herschell Gordon Lewis’ cult slasher “2000 Maniacs.”
