Joel Schumacher jumps around from genre to genre whether he succeeds in them or not, but some of his best work is in the world of thrillers. Movies like Flatliners, The Client and A Time to Kill are at the top of his personal best list, so hopefully finding that tension again will churn out a winner.

According to Variety, Schumacher is attached to direct The Hive. Written by Thirteen Ghosts screenwriter Richard D’Ovidio, the story focuses on a 911 operator who has to confront a killer from her past in order to protect a little girl.

Schumacher may have struggled to find the plot in the past few years – with Twelve and Blood Creek (starring Superman!) – but his forthcoming Nic Cage-starring Trespass is set for release this September, so we’ll get to see if he’s still got what it takes to make a solid thriller. Statistically speaking, he’s bound to be due a good one soon, right?
