Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions are quickly becoming one of the premier names in horror entertainment, and next on tap for the house that ghostly activity built is an adaptation of another Stephen King short story. Read on for details.
Variety reports that Universal Pictures is teaming with Jason Blum's red-hot Blumhouse Productions banner on Mercy, a fantasy-horror movie based on Stephen King's short story "Gramma," published as part of his 1985 collection Skeleton Crew.
The story follows two young boys who go with their single mother (O'Connor) to take care of their elderly, senile grandmother named Mercy, only to discover that she's a witch who made a pact with a dark force many years before.
