In May we told you that Todd Lincoln had signed on to will write and direct The Apparition for Joel Silver’s genre label Dark Castle Entertainment. But at the time, details about the project were being kept under wraps. The only thing we knew was that the story is said to be based on true events and involve a haunted house. The project is picking up steam now that Twilight star Ashley Greene is in talks to star, and Variety has some new detail… Apparently the story “centers on a young couple haunted by a supernatural presence unleashed during a college experiment.” And the project is being fast tracked, and will go into production in February 2010.
Lincoln’s short films Honey Pot and Xavier played to acclaim at film festicals, gaining the attention of a Los Angeles commercial and music video production company called Public Works. He has been directing commercials, music videos, and developing a potential feature film debut ever since. Lincoln had been attached to a remake of The Fly for Fox, and has since been developing a live-action adaptation of Hack/Slash for Rogue Pictures, and more recently became attached to an adaptation of Devil Due’s alien thriller graphic novel The Nye Incidents, also for Dark Castle.
I haven’t seen much of Lincoln’s work, as his short films aren’t available online. But I really dug his music video for Lucky Pool’s Judy and Mary. Check it out, embedded after the jump.
