The Conjuring writers join Vikram Bhatt's next as screenplay consultants
Titled The Cello, the horror film is based on a story by Saudi poet-songwriter Turki Al-Sheikh
Vikram Bhatt’s upcoming feature film will have the American writer duo Carey and Chad Hayes (The Conjuring, House Of Wax) as screenplay consultants. This project has been titled The Cello and the horror film is based on a story by Saudi poet-songwriter Turki Al-Sheikh, whose pen name is Rozam.
"Filmmaking is a collaborative process, and to work with the best is an honour. We are excited about The Cello, as it not only 'plays' up to everything we love about these types of movies, but also promises a mind-blowing story with scares that will chill even the bravest to the bone," Carey and Chad Hayes said in a statement.
On the other hand, Vikram Bhatt said that he bonded with the writer duo over their love for horror films. "While Carey Hayes and Chad Hayes will be consulting on the screenplay based on a story written by Turki Al-Sheikh, I will be directing it. We plan to shoot a big portion of the film in Saudi Arabia. I am particularly excited to explore the virgin location of Al Ula," the filmmaker said.
