Tobe Hooper Directing ‘Djinn’

The Master of Horror -- Tobe Hooper -- the director behind the legendary classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre as well as the three-time Academy Award-nominated, Steven Spielberg-produced Poltergeist, will helm Imagenation Abu Dhabi's Arabian horror film Djinn. Penned by U.S writer David Tully (Hepzibah), this unique new take on the haunted house thriller uncovers the dark truth behind classic fairytales of the Genie. Djinn tells the nightmarish story of a young Emirati couple who return home from the U.S. and discover that their new apartment in a luxury high-rise built on the site of an abandoned fishing village is also home to the malevolent beings known as Djinn.

Djinn, which was announced at this year's Cannes Film Festival, is scheduled to begin shooting in the UAE March 20th. Emirati director Nayla Al Khaja, behind the short films Once, Arabana, and Malal (premiering at the Dubai International Film Festival this month), will work as a cultural consultant on Djinn. Khaja will shadow Hooper on the set and train with him in preparation to helm her first feature length horror film.
