Wes Craven returns to writing and directing

While Wes Craven has certainly directed several films in the last 12 years (such as Cursed, Scream and Red Eye), he hasn’t written and shot a movie since 1994’s Wes Craven’s New Nightmare.

Feeling the need to stretch both muscles at once, the horror guru has announced that he’s getting back into the writer-director game with an untitled psychological horror. "It is rooted in the supernatural with a 16-year old central character, but it's more Sixth Sense than a slasher film," Craven blabbed to Variety . "It's appalling to me that you have to go back to 1994 to find an original that I wrote and directed, so this is very important to me."

Universal’s Rogue Pictures will distribute the new movie, though Craven's also been setting up a new production company, Midnight Pictures, with the Rogue team. He plans to produce several cheap (well, Hollywood cheap, as in less than $15 million) scares.
