A report from Deadline specifies Netflix as the winner of a competitive bid for the screenplay BelowBelow is a horror, thriller from the writing of Greg Weidman and Geoff Tock. The same tandem that brought In The Shadow Of The Moon, Zoo, Limitless – the television series and the Dead Air episode of Defiance. Their latest piece Sovereign is also in pre-production.

Below will be the first horror screenplay Weidman and Tock would have under their belt. The writers have given mystery, thriller, crime and drama stories. It seems previous projects are actually priming the two for the screenplay Below. With the details on the story still under wraps, the team expects production development to commence very soon. Hopefully, casting will be called in a few weeks as well.

Director David Sandberg is currently overseeing post-production of Shazam! Fury of the Gods. Although recent projects are more on the superhero genre, Sandberg is no stranger to horror, suspense or thriller. His works Annabelle: Creation, Lights Out, Closet Space and Attic Panic have brought much fright and scare to his audience.

Whether this project will be developed into a movie or a series for Netflix still remains to be seen. One thing is for sure, Netflix will maximize what it can for this screenplay’s future in the streaming service. Considering that the streaming giant is always on the look out for promising storylines, they also have to regain the attention of the audience as competition has grown tighter in the presence of new players in the field.
