Director Lee Daniels, who first made a name for himself with the 2009 drama Precious followed by the hit Oscar-nominated biopic The Butler, is set to take on his first horror movie with the true-life inspired Demon House.

Relativity is behind this story that still continues to this day, centering on demonic possession. Latoya Ammons and her family claim to be victims of the supernatural, succumbing to evil forces while living in their Gary Indiana home.

Relativity is financing the project, and will produce and distribute the thriller. Jackson Nguyen and Todd Crites of Turn Left Productions are producing alongside Bruce Cohen. Richard Potter will oversee the film on for Relativity.

Lee Daniels is currently serving as an executive producer on Fox's upcoming hip-hop inspired drama Empire. He also has the upcoming films Iced and The Brian Banks Story on his slate.
