John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle, the directorial tandem who adapted the Spanish horror film [REC] into the American remake Quarantine, are getting back into the horror game. This time they’re working on a project called Devil, based on a story by M. Night Shyamalan.

Shyamalan, who is producing the flick, is keeping all of the plot details under lock and key as the production gets set to roll camera in Toronto on October 26th. However, with the report from Variety today that Chris Messina (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) has been tapped to star comes the revelation that he will play a sobered-up homicide detective. So glean what you will from that little bit of information.

Adding to the horror players rally is screenwriter Brian Nelson, who worked with Steve Niles and Stuart Beattie on the adaptation of 30 Days of Night. He was brought in to write the screenplay. As always, we’ll let you know when more info is available. For now, it is just nice to see M. Night going back to horror, and letting someone else take the directorial reigns.
