STXFilms has picked up director Scott Cooper’s upcoming psychological horror thriller A Head Full Of Ghosts, which will star Margaret Qualley (Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood). STX will distribute the film in the U.S. and UK.
The film is an adaptation of Paul Tremblay’s Bram Stoker Award-winning horror novel, and this is the description of the story:
When 8-year-old Merry’s older sister exhibits signs of an indeterminate and terrifying affliction, the Barrett family slowly tears itself apart. Now, 20 years later, Merry is confronted with her family’s traumatic past when Rachel, a journalist with a similarly haunted past, delves into the case, causing Merry to relive and reconsider the devastating memories of her childhood.
Cooper most recently directed the horror film Antlers, which looks awesomely gnarly. He previously helmed films such as Crazy Heart, Out of the Furnace, Black Mass, and Hostiles.
A Head Full of Ghosts seems like the perfect film project for him and I’m looking forward to seeing how the story ends up playing out.
