Twilight filmmaker Catherine Hardwicke is in talks to direct the female-driven horror thriller Wish Upon for Broad Green Pictures, TheWrap has reported.
Written by Barbara Marshall, Wish Upon follows a 16-year-old girl who finds a magic box that promises to grant her seven wishes, but with each wish comes dark and gruesome consequences. The plot seems very similar to Wishmaster.
Though Hardwicke is best known for her Twilight movies, she also directed the critically acclaimed drama Thirteen.
Production company Busted Shark’s Sherryl Clark (Cloverfield) is producing Wish Upon, having previously worked with Hardwicke on the 2013 Blumhouse thriller Plush. Let’s hope Hardwicke takes this opportunity to do something better than the Twilight movie franchise.
