Sinister team C. Robert Cargill and Scott Derrickson are ready to answer The Black Phone. The pair will adapt the short story by Joe Hill into a feature film for Blumhouse, with Derrickson directing a script he co-wrote with Cargill. Mason Thames (For All Mankind) and Madeleine McGraw (Toy Story 4, Secrets of Sulphur Springs) are set to star in the adaptation, which tells the story of a kidnapped boy who receives a ghostly call on the broken phone located in the basement where he’s being held captive.
