The project has been in development since 2011, as a part of Lionsgate's micro-budget slate, but the thriller picked up steam when Kevin Bacon and Radha Mitchell signed on to star back in February. Universal Pictures is now set to distribute the thriller, under its first-look deal with producer Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions.
The story centers on a family who become terrorized by a supernatural entity they unwittingly bring home with them from their Grand Canyon vacation, which feeds off their fears as it threatens to tear them apart from within.
