Not only is this pretty convincing, Variety is saying that it's a done deal.
After helming the successful Exorcism of Emily Rose, Derrickson was tapped to write and direct the box office over-performing Sinister, a movie many consider a modern day classic horror film. He is not without his missteps though, as the remake of the classic sci-fi thriller The Day The Earth Stood Still (starring an unusually heavy dialoguey-laden Keanu Reaves) is also in his resume.
His next thriller, “Deliver Us From Evil,” opens July 2 and stars Eric Bana and Olivia Munn.
