International sales are being handled by Focus Features International at Cannes. Production is set for a late summer start.
Variety reported April 27 that Flanagan has come on board to direct, with production set for a late summer start. Intrepid and Focus previously collaborated on the international release of “The Strangers.”
Story centers on a murder that left two children orphans with authorities charging the brother while his sister believed that the true culprit was a haunted antique mirror. Now completely rehabilitated and in his 20s, the brother is ready to move on but his sister is determined to prove that the haunted mirror was responsible for destroying their family.
Flanagan was writer-director of microbudget horror pic “Absentia,” which won best feature at the 2011 Los Angeles-based Shriekfest and was distribbed by Phase 4 Films on homevid and VOD.
