Sidney Kimmel Ent. haunts ‘Ghost’

Iliadis to direct supernatural thriller

Dennis Iliadis has signed on to direct “Pay the Ghost” for Sidney Kimmel Entertainment.

Mark Gordon Prods. and Midnight Kitchen Prods. are producing the supernatural thriller, which marks Iliadis’ follow-up to the horror remake “Last House on the Left.”

“Pay the Ghost” is the second project SKE has greenlit since restructuring its operations last year to focus on more commercial fare. SKE also recently produced with Screen Gems the comedy “Death at a Funeral,” which bows Friday.

“Pay the Ghost” was adapted by Dan Kay from a Tim Lebbon short story. Story kicks off on Halloween night, when a couple’s young son is mysteriously abducted. A year later, they begin to sense his presence in frightening ways.

Sidney Kimmel is producing alongside Mark Gordon, Jordan Wynn and Ian Levy. Jim Tauber is exec producing the film, which is scheduled to lense in the summer.

Gordon and Kimmel previously teamed on the period pic “Talk to Me.”
