The Devil Inside director William Brent Bell has signed on to direct The Inhabitant for Lakeshore Entertainment and Vertigo.

No plot details have been released for the supernatural thriller, but the story is said to be in the same vein as last year's box office hit The Conjuring. Stacey Menear wrote the screenplay. The writer's script entitled Mixtape landed on The Blacklist back in 2009.

Tom Rosenberg (Gone) and Gary Lucchesi (I, Frankenstein) are producing for Lakeshore Entertainment, alongside Vertigo's Roy Lee (The Lego Movie), Matt Berenson (The Place Beyond the Pines), Jim Wedaa (Unstoppable) and Adam Stone. No production schedule was given.

William Brent Bell made his directorial debut in 2006 with Stay Alive. His 2012 follow-up, The Devil Inside, took in $107.1 million worldwide from just a $1 million production budget. He also directed the thriller Wer, which hasn't been released in the U.S. at this time.
