The Pact director Nicholas McCarthy has signed on to direct the horror/thriller Descendents, according to THR. The film is written by Jeff Buhler (Jacob’s Ladder) and will focus on a young boy who is a genius. However, as he grows older, people begin wondering if his genius is an inherent trait or if there’s something far more sinister at play.
The Exorcism of Emily Rose‘s Tripp Vinson will be producing the film with XYZ Films executive producing. The film is in pre-production right now and will shoot later this year.
