Australian newcomer Peter Cornwell is in negotiations to direct The Dionaea House, a horror thriller that David Heyman is producing for Warner Bros. Pictures, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Written by Eric Heisserer and announced months ago, the story centers on a married man who has grown apart from his old friends. When one of them commits a double murder-suicide, the men feel compelled to investigate, eventually stumbling upon an evil force that perpetuates itself through tract housing. Marc Rosen and Ali Bell are overseeing “Dionaea” for Heyday. Kevin McCormick is shepherding the project at the studio.
