According to Variety, the first film will be The Substitute, a remake of the Danish thriller that Scott Derrickson will direct and Columbia Pictures will co-finance and distribute through a first-look deal with Spooky.

The project revolves around a terrified sixth-grade class as the students race to reveal to their parents that their new substitute teacher is an evil alien being.

Derrickson is penning the script with Paul Harris Boardman.

No production date has been set.
