Spider-Man director Sam Raimi is among the producers of Every House Is Haunted, a movie adaptation of one of the stories from Ian Rogers’ collection of the same name. The specific tale, “The House on Ashley Avenue,” concerns an insurance investigator who doesn’t believe that a couple’s death was caused by a haunted house—but the things he sees (and the input of a psychic) challenge his certainty.
Deadline reports that there were several bids on the film, and Netflix was the winner.
Deadline also notes that Rogers’ entire story collection was optioned by Starlight, a company with which Raimi has a financing deal. The adaptation of “Ashley Avenue” is written by Jason Pagan and Andrew Deutschman, two of the co-writers on Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, and will be directed by Corin Hardy (The Nun).
Rogers, who will serve as a consultant on the film, has also published fiction with Tor.com, including the novelette “Go Fish,” which is a direct follow-up to “The House on Ashley Avenue” in which a team of psychic investigators are assigned to examine the grisly death of a night watchman in an abandoned fish processing plant.
There’s no news yet on casting or release date.
