Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has snapped up worldwide rights to A Man In The Dark, the thriller from Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert’s Ghost House Pictures which Evil Dead helmer Fede Alvarez will direct. Alvarez and writing partner Rodo Sayagues co-wrote the tale, about three teens who break into a house to rob a blind man of millions only to fight for their own survival against a psychopath with secrets of his own. Sony and Ghost House most recently teamed on Alvarez’s $97.5 million grossing 2013 Evil Dead reboot. Raimi and Tapert are producers on A Man In The Dark, while J.R. Young, Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake will executive produce. Erin Westerman will oversee for the company. WME Global negotiated the deal on behalf of Alvarez with Dark and Michael Meyer for Ghost House and Jon Freedberg, Michael Helfand and Joe Matukewicz for SPWA.
