Screenwriter David Leslie Johnson is on board to pen the script. He's known for his work on horror films like Orphan and The Conjuring 2. Johnson also has a long-standing working relationship with Warner Bros., having written the upcoming Conjuring 3 and currently flexing his filmmaking muscles on the studio's Nightmare on Elm Street remake.
