Dennis Iliadis, who directed the successful 2009 remake The Last House on the Left, is setting up a new horror project entitled The Demonologists, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Dennis Iliadis is in negotiations to direct the project, which was written by Teddy Tenenbaum (Ghost Whisperer). The story revolves around a family of ghost hunters who think they're taking on another normal job when they realize that the house has been overrun by demons. It is said that the project bears some similarities to the cult-classic horror movie House, where a normal family becomes possessed into committing acts of violence.

Producer Joel Silver and his Silver Pictures banner is behind the project, although it doesn't seem that a studio has been attached to the project yet.
