Moritz shingle asks scribe to ‘Prom’

Original, Susco pair up for big 'Night'

“The Grudge” scribe Stephen Susco is writing horror pic “Prom Night” for Neal Moritz’s Original Film at Sony. Production is slated to begin early next year.

Pic takes as its jumping-off point the 1980 pic of the same name starring Jamie Lee Curtis.

Moritz is producing along with Newmarket Films. Trailblazer Films’ Marc Forby, who brought the project to Original, is exec producing.

Heather Lieberman is overseeing for Original. Matt Tolmach and Shannon Gaulding are shepherding for Sony.

Susco wrote Sony’s American remake of the Japanese pic “Ju-On” (“The Grudge”), produced by Sam Raimi and starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, which opens Oct. 22.

He also adapted the Jack Ketchum horror novel “Red,” with Lucky McKee directing the pic for Circle of Confusion at United Artists, and wrote the remake of the hit Quebecois horror pic “Sur le Seuil” (“Evil Words”), which Vertigo Entertainment is producing for Dimension.

Moritz is in production on “XXX: State of the Union” for Revolution. He recently wrapped actioner “Stealth,” directed by Rob Cohen, which he produced with Mike Medavoy and Laura Ziskin for Sony.
