Sam Raimi has signed on to produce a supernatural horror film called Refuge based on a pitch from up-and-coming British director Corin Hardy according to THR.
“Refuge” centers on a remote town terrorized by a Yeti, the mythological creature native to the mountains of the Himalayas. Hardy will direct from a script by fellow British writer Tom De Ville; both are repped by Paradigm’s Marc Helwig and Trevor Astbury.
Meanwhile, Blum’s Blumhouse Prods. will finance a short film with the same premise as the “Refuge” feature. Hardy and De Ville will work on that as well. The idea is to offer a teaser that can help Hardy refine his vision even as the script is being developed.
Soudns like my kind of film and good to know that Sam Raimi is involved in another horror after Drag Me to Hell.
