Sony Pictures and Matt Tolmach Productions have acquired The Bringing, a horror spec script written by Brandon and Phillip Murphy and based on an actual place and series of events, says Deadline.
The spec’s basis is on a woman, Elisa Lam, who was found dead in the water tanks on the roof of the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles. That’s the place that killers like Richard Ramirez called home at one time or another, and where suicides have occurred. Explains the site, footage of Lam’s bizarre inexplicable behavior in an elevator before her death became a massive internet sensation, and this has been turned into the story of the man investigating her death, and the nightmare he stumbles into.
Michael De Luca championed the project, which means it’s probably very good.
