Raimi Has Monkey's Paw
Variety reports that Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert?s Ghost House Pictures has picked up a pitch called MONKEY?S PAW from writers Dave Kajganich and Tom McAlister. Ghost House will produce and Kajganich and McAlister will script the update of the classic story in which the titular totem makes wishes come true?with unpleasant side effects. Here, the artifact wreaks havoc among a family whose father brings it home. No director has been signed yet, nor is a distributor in place. Kajganich has recently been busy scripting a bunch of genre remakes, including PET SEMATARY for Paramount, INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS for Warner Bros. and THE CHANGELING for Rogue Pictures.
