According to Variety, Leonardo DiCaprio's production banner, Appian Way, has preemptively bought Sheldon Turner's pitch In Dark Woods for Appian and Graham Nash's Initial Entertainment Group to produce.

While Appian is keeping the plot under wraps, it described the project as a dark revenge thriller. Appian purchased the pitch through Nash's IEG.

Turner, who wrote the screenplay for this summer's remake of The Longest Yard, penned upcoming horror-thriller Pacific Air Flight 121 for New Line Cinema.
