While there’s not much here just yet, Colin Vaines (My Week With Marilyn) is working with UK chiller specialist David Pirie on a feature ghost story Vaines described to Screen Daily as a “classic genre piece given a fresh treatment.”
The script, currently in the development stage, is already generating buzz: “David has written a brilliant outline and I’ve got people interested in the development of the piece. We could go into production very quickly at the right price,” Vaines told Screen.
Pirie was nominated for a BAFTA for his 1997 adaptation of Wilkie Collins’s The Woman in White and has written episodes of “Murderland,” “Inspector Lewis,” Agatha Christie’s “Poirot” and “Murder Rooms.” He also worked (uncredited) on the screenplay of Lars von Trier’s Breaking the Waves.
In 2011, the prolific Vaines produced W.E. and Coriolanus and executive produced The Rum Diary and My Week with Marilyn, which was nominated for two Oscars this past Sunday.
