Deadline reports that Oculus filmmakers Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard have sold their original pitch Peekers to Lionsgate.
“A terrified man walks into a police station to report that the residents on his entire street are missing, insisting the victims were done in by eerie, grinning doppelgängers. When the man disappears from the locked interrogation room, the young female police officer who took his statement must venture out into the rapidly vanishing community to find her son and get him to safety as the community is infested by these deadly grinning idiots.”
It’s a micro-budget horror film that they will adapt from the short story by Bram Stoker Award-winning Irish novelist Kealan Patrick Burke.
Last Vegas’ Lawrence Grey will produce through his Grey Matter Productions.
