Ciarán Foy, the Irish filmmaker behind the multi-award winning ‘Citadel’ and ‘Sinister 2,’ has signed on to take the helm for the psychological horror ‘Eli.’

Based on the 2015 Black List script by David Chirchirillo, the horror centres on “a young boy who undergoes treatment for a rare disease at a secluded clinic, which becomes a haunted prison with no way out.”

‘The Autopsy of Jane Doe’ scribe Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing are on board to re-write script, while Trevor Macy and Intrepid Pictures produce.
