Oscar-nominated screenwriter and Penny Dreadful creator John Logan is set to make his directorial debut with Whistler Camp, a new horror film from Blumhouse.
Very few details have been released about the film, but it will apparently be set at a conversion therapy camp.
Logan received the Tony award for his play Red and wrote the book for the musical Moulin Rouge. As a screenwriter, he is a three-time Academy Award nominee for The Aviator, Hugo, and Gladiator. Logan has also received Golden Globe, BAFTA, WGA, and Edgar awards. His films include Skyfall, Spectre, The Last Samurai, Sweeney Todd, Rango, Alien: Covenant and Any Given Sunday.
Whistler Camp is currently in the casting process.
Jason Blum will produce the film for Blumhouse along with Michael Aguilar who also previously worked with Logan on Penny Dreadful. Writer, producer, and director Ryan Turek (Halloween Kills, Freaky) will serve as creative executive on the project for Blumhouse.
The news comes as Blumhouse is ramping up production on several new titles including A House on the Bayou which is currently in production in Louisiana and is part of an eight-film deal with Epix premium network.
