Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert's Ghost House Pictures seems to have a bit of a gap in it's upcoming slate but it appears that the previously talked about 2012 release of 'Dibbuk Box' has officially got itself a new director in the form of Danish writer/helmer Ole Bornedal ('Vikaren' AKA 'The Substitute'). The 'based on "apparent" true events' tale of a haunted wine cabinet was picked up by Ghost House about 6 years ago now so it's nice to see some progress at last. Juliet Snowden and Stiles White penned the script which was acquired in March.

The new project is based on an article from the Los Angeles Times by Leslie Gornstein called 'Jinx in a Box,' about an antique wooden box sold on eBay (in February 2004) that contained an evil spirit and was brought to America by a Holocaust survivor after WWII.

Of course Sam Raimi himself has been recently linked to a big budget remake of 'The Day of the Triffids'. The killer plants from space movie, originally a novel by Brit novelist John Wyndham, was turned into a feature length movie back in 1962 by Steve Sekely film, and then developed into two subsequent TV mini-series in 1981 and more recently starring Dougray Scott and Joely Richardson for the BBC. It's a very British affair and it'll be interesting to see if Raimi and Ghost House Pictures will Americanise the tale or stick to it's roots (pun intended!).

Lionsgate will be distributing 'Dibbuk Box'.
