Sony has picked up the spec Nightlight with Bob Shaye, the founder of movie company New Line, on board as one of the producers, reports THR.
Rising filmmaker Tyler MacIntyre (Tragedy Girls) co-wrote the script with Chris Hill and is attached to direct what Sony envisions will be a low-budget thriller.
It centers around a 10-year-old boy who must fight off some sort of invaders while home alone.
Sara Rastogi is overseeing for Sony’s Columbia Pictures division, which picked up the project in a competitive situation.
Shaye is producing via his banner, Unique Pictures. The company’s Vince Gatewood and Michael Lynne are also producing.
Shaye created New Line in the 1960s, working out of a New York walk-up, turning into one of the most successful indie film companies in the business. The company really came to the fore when it became “the house the Freddy built” in the 1980s when Shaye produced the hit The Nightmare on Elm Street movie series.
