Alexandre Aja, who brought you films such as Crawl, Horns, High Tension, and Mirrors (among others), is gearing up to deliver his new film with Searchlight Pictures.
Titled Elijah, the film “follows a young boy who invites a mysterious man into his home, believing the stranger to be the key to saving his sick mother. As increasingly disturbing things start to happen around his home, the boy soon realizes that the sinister stranger is not the savior he claims to be.”
Cory Goodman (The Last Witch Hunter) penned the original script with Gregory Lavasseur (Mirrors) rewriting it, Deadline reports.
David Goyer and Keith Levine of Phantom Four (The Night House) along with Adam Goldworm of Aperture Entertainment are producing. Searchlight’s DanTram Nguyen is overseeing the project.
