'Paranormal' producer Schneider also teaming on thriller

Graham King’s GK Films, Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way and “Paranormal Activity” exec producer Steven Schneider are teaming to produce the psychological thriller “Home.”

Dennis Iliadis directs from a script by Adam Alleca.

Iliadis and Alleca previously teamed on Rogue’s 2009 remake of “The Last House on the Left.”

“Home” follows an unstable young man staying at his dead father’s house. As odd phenomena begin to occur, he struggles to determine whether he’s having a nervous breakdown or his father is haunting him.

King and Tim Headington will produce for GK Films, while Jennifer Killoran and Alex Mace will produce for Appian Way.

Project was originally optioned in 2005 by Wes Craven through his and Marianne Maddalena’s Craven/Maddalena Films banner.

Alleca wrote the first draft of “Home” when he was an intern at Eli Roth’s Raw Nerve shingle.

Alleca is repped by WME and Brillstein Entertainment Partners, while CAA and 3 Arts rep Iliadis.Scribe was recently tapped by Mandalay Vision to adapt Zenescope Entertainment’s 2007 graphic novel “The Piper,” a modern retelling of the Pied Piper fairy tale that follows a high school student who tries to kill all his classmates and teachers.

Schneider, who recently produced the sleeper hit “Insidious,” also serves as a producer on “Paranormal Activity 3,” which Paramount releases Oct. 21.

GK Films has Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo,” Angelina Jolie’s “In the Land of Blood and Honey” and Johnny Depp starrer “The Rum Diary” skedded for release later this year. Company is also developing a reboot of the “Tomb Raider” franchise and a movie about Queen frontman Freddie Mercury that will star Sacha Baron Cohen.
