Amanda Seyfried is in talks to star in ‘Things Heard & Seen’ a supernatural horror thriller that is slated to air on Netflix. Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, who are known for works like ‘American Splendor’ and ‘10,000 Saints’, have written the script and are going to be directing as well. Anthony Bregman is on board as the producer. He is co-producing along with Stefanie Azpiazu, Peter Cron and Julie Cohen. The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.
The film revolves around a young couple who move to a farm that is near a small town in upstate New York. What they do not know is that their home is cursed by the murder of its former owners. As the haunted secrets of the house reveal themselves, it appears that the husband and the wife’s marriage has a darkness of its own. It is an adaptation of Elizabeth Brundage’s book, ‘All Things Cease to Appear’.
Seyfried obviously plays the role of the wife who happens to be struggling to adjust to life in the small town and eventually comes to be convinced that her house is haunted. There have been reports that the tone of the show will be akin to the Netflix hit ‘The Haunting of Hill House‘, which combined the psychological aspects of family dynamics wonderfully with the supernatural elements to produce a memorable Gothic tale.
‘Things Heard & Seen’ is aiming for a fall start. As for Seyfried, it is her second recent horror project, following the horror movie from Blumhouse titled ‘You Should Have Left’, co-starring Kevin Bacon, that follows a scriptwriter, who travels with his family to a remote place in the Alps, but regrets his decision when he goes through a severe case of writer’s block. Seyfried was most recently seen in ‘The Art of Racing in the Rain’, which details the relationship between a race car driver and his dog who realizes that the techniques needed on the racetrack can be used to successfully navigate through life as well.
Apart from that, Amanda Seyfried seems to have a busy schedule since she has quite a few movies lined up. She is slated to appear in ‘Scoob’, an animated movie about the popular cartoon dog Scooby-Doo, who helps solves mysteries with the gang which includes Fred, Daphne, Velma, and Shaggy. Seyfried lends her voice to Daphne. Seyfried is also going to be seen in a drama titled ‘A Mouthful Of Air’, which deals with a children’s book author who escapes into her own creations to leave behind a dark world of post-partum depression.
