American writer duo Carey and Chad Hayes, who have worked on horror films such as The Conjuring and House of Wax, are set to consult on the script of director Vikram Bhatt’s next feature film.
Titled The Cello, the horror film is based on a story by Saudi poet-songwriter Turk al-Sheikh, which goes by the pen name Rosam.
According to Carrie and Chad Hayes, following the massive success of the 2013 James Van Directing The Conjuring, they have had many opportunities to work with the best creators in Hollywood and are now eager to expand “globally” with Cello .
“Filmmaking is a collaborative process, and working with the best is an honor. We are excited about Cello, as it not only ‘plays’ everything we love about these types of films, but also promises a mind-blowing story with fear, which makes Bone even the most Will make it more cold, ”the brothers said in a statement.
The pair described Al-Sheikh and Bhatt as “incredibly creative and talented individuals” who strive to make horror films with heart and soul.
Known for films like Raaz and 1920, Bhatt said that he bonded with Al-Sheikh for his love for horror thrillers and decided to join hands for the project.
“While Kerry Hayes and Chad Hayes will consult the script based on the story written by Turk al-Sheikh, I will direct it.” We are planning to shoot a major part of the film in Saudi Arabia. I am particularly excited to find out the virgin location of Al Ula, ”said the filmmaker.
Supported by Rosam, The Cello is expected to be released later this year.
