Mike Flanagan, the extremely talented director of the superb horror Absentia and the yet to be released Oculus and Somnia, has announced his next spookfest.
Oculus premiered at the SXSW film festival in Texas last night, and on the eve of the premiere, Flanagan’s next film was announced. Flanagan will once again collaborate with Oculus producer Trevor Macy, of Intrepid Pictures.
Writer-director Mike Flanagan and Intrepid Pictures’ Trevor Macy are reteaming on the supernatural thriller Diver, setting a summer production start. Flanagan will direct a script by Diane Ademu-John and Carter Blanchard with revisions by Flanagan and writing partner Jeff Howard. Macy will produce the film, with Marc D. Evans, Asha Kurian, and Julie Wilke also serving in various producing capacities.
Diver revolves around a secret project based in New Orleans that involves a team sent to enter the minds of the recently dead to experience their final memories in order to solve the most heinous crimes. When the Divers breach the barrier between the living and the dead, they must contend with the supernatural force they unleash.
