Director Dennis Iliadis (Last House on the Left) has signed on to direct The Demonologists.  The film tells the story of “a family of veteran ghost hunters who get more than they bargained for when they are called in to face what they soon realize is not a routine ghost job but a demon infestation.”  The film will be written by Teddy Tenenbaum, whose previous credits include a few episodes for the television series Ghost Whisperer and Dead Zone.  Hit the jump to read about Iliadis possibly directing a remake of The Birds.

According to 24 Frames, Iliadis is also being considered for the Platinum Dunes remake of the Alfred Hitchcock classic, The Birds.  This is one of those projects which I feel I’ve been reading about for years now.  At one point, Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) was going to direct the film with Naomi Watts attached to star.  That film never materialized. »
