Blumhouse, Ridley unite on ‘Project Poltergeist’

Oscar winner John Ridley will direct a film based on Saleah Blancaflor-penned article ‘Project Poltergeist’.

The film, set up with Blumhouse and Truly*Adventurous (where the original article was published), will center on the first purported haunting to be experienced in a public housing project. The adaptation will reportedly focus on the true events surrounding unexplained events that terrified a young boy in New Jersey in the 1960s.

Jason Blum will produce via Blumhouse with Truly*Adventurous’ Matthew Pearl and Greg Nicholas as executive producers.
