Nicolas Winding Refn Will Not Direct Haunted Hotel Film THE BRINGING

     June 13, 2014

Following yesterday’s disappointing news that Guillermo del Toro has dropped out of directing Beauty and the Beast, another bummer has surfaced by way of a potential Nicolas Winding Refn project.  Last month, we learned that the Drive filmmaker was in talks to make an exciting haunted hotel film for Sony called The Bringing.  Unfortunately, Variety reporter Justin Kroll says negotiations stalled and Refn will not be directing the pic after all.  I was really looking forward to seeing what a studio-backed horror film from the guy who made Only God Forgives would look like, but it appears that’s not going to be happening anytime soon.

Nevertheless, Refn recently confirmed that his next pic will be the indie horror thriller I Walk with the Dead, so there’s still plenty to look forward to.  Sony likely still wants to move forward with The Bringing, so we’ll probably hear a director confirmation for the project in the coming months.
