Last April, we were proud to exclusively introduce the world to director Michael Chaves‘ The Maiden, which quickly led to Chaves becoming a hot name on the horror scene. It was announced last October that Paramount and Platinum Dunes were prepping a film for Chaves to direct, and a feature length expansion of The Maiden was also announced.
Now, we’re thrilled to tell you that Chaves has officially been tapped to direct The Children, a forthcoming New Line horror film being produced by James Wan!
Variety reports that Linda Cardellini (“Bloodline”) will star in the film, following a social worker who, while investigating the mysterious disappearance of two children, discovers her own family might also be in jeopardy.
Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis wrote the script.
Wan will produce through his Atomic Monster production banner along with Gary Dauberman and Emile Gladstone. Michael Clear is executive producing.
