Remember that creepy Twitter ghost story 'Dear David'? It's being made into a movie

Here’s everything we know so far.

LONG TIME TWITTER users will be familiar with the story of Dear David, the true (?) viral tale of some paranormal activity which took place last year.

Illustrator and former Buzzfeed writer Adam Ellis shared the story of a haunting in his apartment with his Twitter followers between August 2017 to March of this year.

The story is now being developed as a “high-concept horror thriller”, with ‘IT’ producer Dan Lin on board to produce. Horror heavyweights New Line won a bidding war this week to distribute the film.

Adam’s story saw him provide digital evidence of what appeared to be a haunted doll – which he would only address with ‘Dear David’ – as it terrorised him (and his cats.) Adam maintains that the story is true – however, many have been quick to poke holes in some of the photographic examples he’s presented.

Earlier this year, TheWrap reported that Mike Van Waes would write the script.
