According to Variety.com (variety.com/2017/film/news/finn-wolfhard-horror-movie-turning-1202639379/), the film adaptation of the novella The Turn of The Screw will be renamed The Turning. The Amblin's haunted house film will be directed by Ms. Floria Sigismondi. She had done such movies as The Runaways and did television episodes of Hemlock Grove, American Gods, and Daredevil. The script would be pen through by Ms. Jade Barlett ( the original script was written by The Conjuring duo Mr. Chad and Carey Hayes). The producers are Mr. Scott Bernstein and Roy Lee. The former had produced Straight Outta Compton while the latter had produced IT . Lastly, the star of IT and Stranger Things Finn Wolfhard has been cast along with Mackenzie Davis who was in The Martian and Blade Runner 2049. I'm very thrill to see a novella being turned into a film. I hope to hear more news like this.
By the way, the horror/thriller novella was written by Henry James and on the topic of novellas,I just want to announce that I've been writing another novella. This time it's a "human being facing nature" type of story (within the home environment.) I can't really say much, but all I can say is that it's really thrilling. I pray someday It would be made into a film, much like The Turn of the Screw is becoming one, because it's unpredictable, nail-biting, son of a story.
BTW, did you know that the 1988 Dutch film that became a international success, The Vanishing (or Spoorloos), came from a novella titled The Golden Egg???? Yes, that's right. The critically acclaimed movie (directed by the late George Sluizer) originated from a psychological thriller novella written by Tim Krabbe. The novella and the movie is known for being one of the most haunting ending ever. Rest assured the ending will leave a mark. The novella, dutch edition, was published in 1984 and the English version was released in 1993. The English edition of the novella the title was changed from The Golden Egg to The Vanishing. The film studio wisely decided to make the novella into a dutch film, and from that came American version, and then came a BBC radio play. So, check out the novella book cover below as well as the dutch trailer( the subtitle is in English I really hope that doesn't discourage you from watching it or seeing the original film because the English version is much different especially the ending which has nothing to do with the source material.)
