Radar Pictures has announced that it has secured the rights to the audio-only mobile game BlindSide and tapped the Soska Sisters (American Mary, Rabid) to write, direct and produce a feature film adaptation entitled Unseen.
The official synopsis reads: “A Boston couple wakes up inexplicably blind and, in their efforts to find help, they stumble into a world that is menacingly different than the one they knew the night before. As the couple claw their way through this terrifying new reality, they fear their sanity slipping away. They sense the presence of a strange new species, one for which light is not a priority.”
“We have long admired Radar and the tremendous work they do as industry titans and innovators,” said the Soska Sisters. “We are very excited and honored to be partnering with this legendary team as they delve deeper into the horror genre and break new ground again. Unseen is a horror film experience completely unlike any other before it. This film will truly bring the fear of the unknown to life by putting the focus of storytelling on what you hear.”
“I enjoyed what the Soskas did with their twist on Cronenberg’s Rabid,” added producer Ted Field (Jumanji, Riddick). “Their work as writers and directors embraces classic genre elements and adds a fresh, visceral quality. I look forward to seeing what we create with Unseen.”
