Billy Ray To Direct Conjure Wife
Breach director adapts horror novel

18 December 2008  |  Written by Chris Hewitt  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

Billy Ray, the writer-director of the under-rated Breach and Shattered Glass, is shifting direction for his next project.

He’s signed on to write and direct Conjure Wife, an adaptation of Fritz Leiber Jr’s 1943 horror fantasy novel about a college professor who discovers that all his good fortune and success is down to the magical intervention of his wife.

When he asks her to stop interfering, dark forces enter his life.

Ray, however, has already overhauled the plot – now his take will see one woman attempt to take over the body of another, more desirable lady. Along with his script for Len Wiseman’s Motorcade, this signals a move into a more commercial area for the talented Ray.

United Artists and StudioCanal are financing the project, with UA’s Don Granger overseeing production. No word on when filming might begin, though.
