BUTCHERHOUSE Coming From Paramount/Platinum Dunes!
Could Platinum Dunes actually be working on an original movie for a change?! They haven’t completely picked up EVERY title from my childhood just yet! (Although they’re close.) SHOCK is reporting that the remake kings are teaming with Paramount to produce something called THE BUTCHERHOUSE CHRONICLES. No director is set, but the script comes from Michael Hidalgo. Here’s the synopsis from SHOCK’s report: "Four teenagers explore a supposedly haunted house and uncover their small town’s horrible secret. After a little digging, we discovered Hidalgo’s "Butcherhouse" began as a play which bowed at Arielle Tepper’s 3rd Annual Summer Play Festival in New York City. Paramount subsequently snapped up the rights to the story in 2006 and asked to Hidalgo to adapt the material for the screen."
