“True Detective” creator Nic Pizzolatto has written a horror film for Blumhouse Productions.

Along with creating the acclaimed HBO series, Pizzolatto has also written for other projects such as Antoine Fuqua’s “Magnificent Seven” and “The Guilty” remakes and assisting David Milch on “Deadwood: The Movie”.

More recently he began writing a Western series for Prime Video which he dubs the “most purely fun story” he’s ever written – a project that has since subsequently been refashioned into a “The Magnificent Seven” TV series remake.

Appearing at this year’s Austin Film Festival, Pizzolatto revealed (via Slashfilm) he has already written a film for Blumhouse Productions which could also serve as his feature directorial debut:

“Blumhouse contracted me to write and direct a horror movie, which I gave them the script for last week. It’s kind of an occult detective story.

But I just took a meeting with them once and we just kind of shot the s— and we had some common friends and we were wrapping up and Couper [Samuelson], the VP of Blumhouse, said, ‘Look, if you ever have an idea for a horror movie…’

And I go, ‘Actually, I have one idea for a horror movie and I’ve had it for 10 years,’ and I told it to him and he’s like, ‘Let’s go make this.’ I’ve got to see what they think of the script, but hopefully we’ll be doing that.”

Pizzolatto didn’t reveal any further details on the project which is now in the hands of the company who is currently on top of the box-office with their “Five Nights at Freddy’s” adaptation. Pizzolatto also recently did a rewrite of Marvel’s “Blade” reboot.
