Variety is reporting that the director will also produce the film (which centres on a young man who begins to see ghosts, following a failed suicide attempt) through his production company, 1492.

This will be Columbus’ first foray into the genre, although his 1999 feature, Bicentennial Man, was a horror of sorts.
