David Katzenberg Directing The Waiting
Found footage meets traditional horror?

David Katzenberg Directing The Waiting

Writer/producers Seth Grahame-Smith (yes, the man responsible for Pride & Prejudice & Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and David Katzenberg are busy bees right now, with TV shows and movies already in development based either on work they’ve created (see above) and other properties. Despite that, Katzenberg has decided that he wants to add “film director” to his already bulging credit list, scoring the job of making horror movie The Waiting for Warner Bros.

The studio bought the spec script from Mark Bianculli and Jeff Richard last month. It follows two young filmmakers who conspire to convince a neighbour that their house is haunted, a scheme that we figure will go badly wrong and lead to some nasty consequences for all involved.

According to Variety, the project will blend found footage (the studios’ current medium of choice for horror) and more traditional filmmaking. It’s not Katzenberg’s first time behind the camera, though he’s largely limited himself to directing episodes of TV shows including The Hard Times Of RJ Berger and Awkward.

Katzenberg and Grahame-Smith are producing via their freshly formed KatzSmith company, but there’s no word on when he’ll start the cameras cranking.
