Filmmaker Scott Derrickson (Doctor Strange; Deliver Us from Evil; Sinister; The Exorcism of Emily Rose) is directing new horror flick Black Phone.

Alongside his frequent collaborator Robert Cargill, Derrickson has adapted novelist Joe Hill’s short story ‘The Black Phone’ into a screenplay that, according to Cargill goes as follows: “A kidnapped kid. A creepy, soundproofed basement. An ancient, disconnected phone. Then, when night falls, the phone rings.”

Child actors Mason Thames (For All Mankind TV series) and Madeleine McGraw (The Harbinger; The Curse of la Llorona; Pacific Rim: Uprising) will headline the juvenile roles.

Derrickson, Cargill and Jason Blum (of course) are co-producing the movie as Crooked Highway Productions. Joe Hill gets an executive producer credit. Universal and Blumhouse will release Black Phone in 2021.
