According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Ring producers Mike Macari and Neal Edelstein have optioned the rights to Don't Say A Word writer Andrew Klavan's new, untitled script in a six-figure deal.

The horror project, which revolves around a widow and her daughter who is haunted by her dead father.

"The script offers a really strong role for a female lead," Klavan said. "So many horror films have offered the same twist as 'Sixth Sense' recently, but this is really different." Klavan is the author of several best-selling novels, including "True Crime," which was turned into a Warner Bros. Pictures film for Clint Eastwood, and "Don't Say a Word," which was the basis for the 20th Century Fox film starring Michael Douglas. Klavan also is working on an untitled Warners script.
