If you’re interested in hearing about the latest horror thriller currently in pre-production, you’ll be pleased to know that Paramount is currently locked in negotiations to acquire Scott Rosenberg’s The Hauntrepreneur.’ 

According to Borys Kit of The Hollywood Reporter, “the story centers on a family that has trouble adjusting to a new town and hires a peculiar man, the Hauntrepreneur, to help it. The man attempts to bring them together by creating a haunted house populated by an odd cast of characters.

“The tone is described as being similar to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
