Dutch Director Diederik Van Rooijen, who has been attached to Platinum Dunes’ remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds for years, has signed on to direct horror film Cadaver for Screen Gems, reports Heat Vision.
Brian Sieve (Boogeyman 2) wrote the script for the film, which “centers on a female cop just out of rehab who takes a graveyard shift in a city hospital morgue. There, a series of bizarre and violent events are caused by a corpse harboring an evil entity.”
Sean Robins and Todd Garner will produce the project via their Broken Road Productions banner. Michael Bitar brought Cadaver to Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper and Scott Strauss, executive vp of production, who will both oversee the project for the company.
Along with Boogeyman 2, Sieve wrote Exorcism at Lincoln High, which is currently in development.
