Amanda Seyfried is in negotiations to star in Things Heard & Seen, a supernatural thriller set up at Netflix.

Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, whose credits range from American Splendor to 10,000 Saints, wrote the script and will direct. Anthony Bregman, who recently wrapped production on In the Heights, is producing with Stefanie Azpiazu, Peter Cron and Julie Cohen.

The story centers on a young couple who move to a farm near a small town in upstate New York. Their new home is cursed by the murder of its former owners and as haunted secrets reveal themselves, the husband and wife’s own marriage is shown to have a darkness unto itself.

Seyfried will play the wife who is struggling to adjust to the small-town life and who comes to believe her house is haunted.

The project is an adaptation of the book All Things Cease to Appear by Elizabeth Brundage, with sources saying the tone is similar to Netflix’s acclaimed series The Haunting of Hill House.

A fall start is being eyed.

Things Seen & Heard will be Seyfried’s second recent horror project as she has the Blumhouse movie You Should Have Left, which also stars Kevin Bacon, in the can.

The actress is coming off The Art of Racing in the Rain, one of the last movies made by Fox before the studio’s acquisition by Disney, and is voicing Daphne in Warner Bros.' Scooby-Doo animated feature Scoob.

Seyfried is repped by Innovative Artists and Frankfurt Kurnit.
