Raimi's Ghost House Grabs a New "Monkey's Paw"

by | June 16, 2005 | Comments

Ghost House Pictures, home of director Sam Raimi, producer Robert Tapert, and movies like "Boogeyman" and "The Grudge," will produce a family-friendly spooky movie based on the classic tale of "The Monkey’s Paw."

Inspired by a pitch from rookie screenwriters Dave Kajganich and Tom McAlister, the movie will cover the familiar story of "a father who brings home an artifact rumored to make any wish come true, but misfortune begins to befall the family with every desire granted."

The classic tale was written by W.W. Jacobs in 1902, but modern audiences are probably most familiar with the "Monkey’s Paw" story by way of, you guessed it, Homer Simpson.
