Company, led by principals Steven Spielberg and Stacey Snider, picked up the spec penned by "Frost/Nixon" scribe Peter Morgan in March when it was still a part of Paramount Pictures. DreamWorks held onto the project as part of its separation pact with the Melrose studio and has been wooing Eastwood to board the project for months.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, but it is described as in the vein of "The Sixth Sense."
I would love to see Eastwood direct a supernatural thriller. Imagine the dark tone he already uses in his films for a horror story.
