Content announced today that the next film from their prolific partnership with hit genre producer Ross M. Dinerstein’s Preferred Film & TV, post this summer’s productions of Dark Summer and The Pact 2, will be Alistair Legrand’s The Diabolical. The terrifying and intense new horror film will mark Legrand’s directorial debut, who co-wrote the script with Luke Harvis.
Currently in pre-production, “The Diabolical follows Madison and her children in their quiet suburban home as they are awoken nightly by an increasingly strange and intense presence. Madison desperately seeks help from her scientist boyfriend Nikolai, who begins a hunt to destroy the violent spirit that paranormal experts are too frightened to undertake.”
Content will launch worldwide sales at the American Film Market beginning next week. Kevin Iwashina of Preferred Content will jointly sell North America with Content’s Jamie Carmichael.
The Diabolical is set to begin production early next year and cast will be announced shortly.
