New Line has picked up the remake rights of Housebound, a horror comedy from New Zealand that was picked as one of Bloody Disgusting’s favorite films of 2014 (read our review).
“The story tells of a rebellious young woman who is forced to return to her country home thanks to forced home detention program. Living with her small-town-minded mother and stepfather seems like a fate worse than death until she begins to suspect that something malevolent may be in house as well.“
Heat Vision writes that Gerard Johnstone, who wrote and directed the movie, will produce the remake but will handover the filmmaking reins to another. A search for a writer to adapt the movie is underway.
