Negotiations are currently going on in regard to Ms. Amanda Seyfried taking the lead in All Things Heard & Seen. Directing the project are Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini (American Splendor). They will also adapt the screenplay. Peter Cron, Stefanie Azpiazu, and Anthony Bregman are producing it along with Ms. Julie Cohen. Hudson Valley, New York is where the production would take place. It starts in October 2019.
Here is the goodread's synopsis of All Things Cease to Appear (renamed All Things Heard & Seen for the film adaptation):
Late one winter afternoon in upstate New York, George Clare comes home to find his wife murdered and their three-year-old daughter alone--for how many hours?--in her room down the hall. He had recently, begrudgingly, taken a position at the private college nearby teaching art history, and moved his family into this tight-knit, impoverished town. And he is the immediate suspect--the question of his guilt echoing in a story shot through with secrets both personal and professional. While his parents rescue him from suspicion, a persistent cop is stymied at every turn in proving Clare a heartless murderer. The pall of death is ongoing, and relentless; behind one crime are others, and more than twenty years will pass before a hard kind of justice is finally served. At once a classic "who-dun-it" that morphs into a "why-and-how-dun-it," this is also a rich and complex portrait of a psychopath and a marriage, and an astute study of the various taints that can scar very different families, and even an entire community.
Mr. David Oyelowo will join the cast that consist of Mr. Kyle Chandler and Ms. Felicity Jones. Mr. George Clooney will star, direct and produce the Netflix project. Mr. Mark L. Smith will adapt the screenplay. The film production will begin in October.
Oyelowo's upcoming films are Come Away, a fantasy movie with Angelina Jolie and a Peter Rabbit sequel.
David Oyelowo also produces and stars in a science-fiction film titled Don't Let Go that comes out on Aug. 30, 2019 which is nine days from now to be exact. I'll also post a blog interview with the director and screenwriter of Don't Let Go, Mr. Jacob Aaron Estes, on that day as well. I hope you check that interview out on Aug. 30th and definitely watch the film as well.

Mr. Mike Flanagan (Gerald's Game, Dr. Sleep) continues his Netflix anthology series. The first being The Haunting of Hill House loosely based on author Ms. Shirley Jackson novel The Haunting of Hill House. The next chapter will be called The Haunting of Bly Manor which will probably be loosely based on Mr. Henry James novella titled The Turn of the Screw. In his own words, Mike Flanagan says:
‘Haunting of Bly Manor’ Will Be ‘Much Scarier’ Than ‘Hill House.’
The Haunting of Hill House was quite the hit and scared a lot of people to make them become fans of his. Obviously we cannot wait to see what Mr. Mike Flanagan has in store for us.
In an interview he told BirthMoviesDeath.com:
“We’re looking at all the ghost stories of Henry James as the jumping-off point for the season, so it very much is a whole new deal. It’s a cool way to expand on some of the things I loved about Season 1, but within the framework of a new story, without having to be restrained by the decisions we made last time. For Henry James fans, it’s going to be pretty wild, and for people who aren’t familiar with his work, it’s going to be unbelievably scary. I already think it’s much scarier than season one, so I’m very excited about it.”
Here is Goodread's synopsis of The Turn of the Screw:
A very young woman's first job: governess for two weirdly beautiful, strangely distant, oddly silent children, Miles and Flora, at a forlorn estate...An estate haunted by a beckoning evil.
Half-seen figures who glare from dark towers and dusty windows- silent, foul phantoms who, day by day, night by night, come closer, ever closer. With growing horror, the helpless governess realizes the fiendish creatures want the children, seeking to corrupt their bodies, possess their minds, own their souls...
But worse-much worse- the governess discovers that Miles and Flora have no terror of the lurking evil.
For they want the walking dead as badly as the dead want them.
