Horror heavy hitters James Wan (The Conjuring Franchise) and Sam Raimi (Evil Dead franchise) have joined forces for the feature film adaptation of the Dutch short film The Burden, from director Nico van den Brink, Deadline reports.
The rights to the short film were snatched up last night by JS Entertainment, Starlight Media, along with Wan’s Atomic Monster and Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures who will produce the feature.
“The short centers on a young woman visiting her boyfriend’s family home. There, she learns about a sinister history with his creepy neighbor and soon, all kinds of skeletons come out of the closet.”
Romel Adam acquired the film for Ghost House and will oversee along with Judson Scott for Atomic Monster.
Van den Brink’s other short horror film Sweet Tooth is getting an adaptation from Atomic Monster and New Line.
