Chris Columbus and 1492 Pictures have acquired screen rights to The Cypress House, a Michael Koryta novel that Columbus will write the script for and produce with 1492 partners Michael Barnathan and Mark Radcliffe, reports Deadline.
The story is set along an isolated stretch of the Florida Gulf Coast during a devastating 1935 hurricane. The protagonist is a WWI veteran who’s plagued by premonitions of death for his traveling companions.
It’s really unclear how horror this project is, although the description on the author’s website says “ ‘House ‘ is a story of relentless evil and unmatched suspense.” Take it for what it’s worth.
