Variety is reporting on a new film called Nellie Bly being written by newcomer Sean Hood, and even thought they’ve slapped it with a "psychological thriller" label, Hood’s credits are seemingly enough to make this newsworthy...
Bly is partially based on an article by the real Nellie Bly, one of the first female investigative journalists who worked in the late 1880’s. She pretended to be insane in order to get into the Blackwell’s Island asylum, where she found unimaginable conditions and brought the place to its knees.
Hood’s recent credits include the script for Peaceful Warrior, which is being helmed by Jeepers Creepers director Victor Salva (it’s not horror, so that’s why we’ve not mentioned it before), and the Masters of Horror short "Sick Girl," which Lucky McKee will be directing sometime next month.
As soon as we learn some more details on Nellie Bly, which will hopefully include why it’s being called a "psychological thriller," you’ll know about it!
