'Lesbian Vampire Killers' Director Boards 'Crawlspace' for New Line (Exclusive)
James Wan is producing the horror movie with Rick Alvarez.
Phil Claydon has signed on to direct Crawlspace, a New Line horror movie that the company hopes will follow in the low-budget success of The Conjuring.
Gary Dauberman (Syfy's Swamp Devil) wrote the screenplay about a family that moves into a new house and immediately falls prey to strange occurrences. But what seems like a traditional supernatural thriller gets twisty when the rug is pulled from under both the family and the audience.
The project was at one time called Within.
Horror meister James Wan has come aboard to produce the project with Rick Alvarez.
Walter Hamada and Dave Neustadter are overseeing for New Line.
Claydon (UTA, Kaplan Perrone) is a genre guy best known for directing 2009 horror comedy Lesbian Vampire Killers. He was at one point attached to direct Dan Minter: Badass for Hire.
New Line’s Conjuring was made for about $20 million but grossed $137 million domestically and $316 million worldwide. The company is now not only making a sequel but developing a spinoff titled Annabelle.
