Joel Schumacher to Revisit ‘The Hive’ of a Serial Killer

Robert Stein and Michael Helfant’s Troika Pictures has announced a slate of new projects, including the Joel Schumacher-helmed suspense thriller The Hive, reports Variety.

From a script by Rich D’Ovidio (who penned the Thir13en Ghosts redo for Dark Castle and Warners), the pic “centers on an emergency operator who must confront a killer from her past to save a young girl’s life.

Schumacher is best known in the horror world as the director of the 1987 The Lost Boys, and most recently returned to the genre with the direct-to-video title Blood Creek. He also helmed the bizarre Batman sequels, Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, along with the totally badass 8MM.
