Lionsgate Horror Film 'The Bride' Finds Writer (Exclusive)
Sarah Conradt has been tapped to pen Lionsgate's The Bride, the English-language remake of a Russian horror movie of the same name.
The original film, which was written and directed by Svyatoslav Podgayevsky, centers on a turn-of-the-century bride who returns from the dead to terrify a modern-day bride and her family.
Chad Hayes and Carey Hayes, the brothers who wrote The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2, will produce.
Conradt works in the horror-thriller genre, landing on the 2011 iteration of the Black List for her thriller Dead of Winter. She previously adapted a remake of Finnish film Black Ice for MGM and Dylan Sellars, and penned the thriller Engima for Focus Features.
She is repped by ICM, Hopscotch Pictures and Gang Tyre.
