Thriller eyes new director.

Bloody Disgusting has word that Brad Peyton (‘Journey 2: The Mysterious Island’) is in line to replace Jeff Wadlow (‘Kick-Ass 2,’ ‘Never Back Down’) as director on the romantic supernatural thriller ‘The Eternals.’

There is not much to go on yet but we do know that the story is set on a “college campus that is haunted by the dead students who are not allowed to connect with the living or leave the campus.”

Chris Hauty (‘Never Back Down’) penned the script with rewrites by Anne Meredith (‘Cavedweller,’ ‘Rated X’).
