Who would’ve thought that a silly movie about alligators would have clicked so well with critics and audiences alike? Not only did it manage to take in nearly $60 million worldwide off its $13.5 million budget, but it also managed to snag an 83% on Rotten Tomatoes, meaning that critics overwhelmingly recommended the film to audiences. With that in mind, we were guaranteed to be keeping an eye on whatever director Alexandre Aja’s next endeavor was.
According to a new report from Collider, Aja already has his next project lined up. The outlet states he has signed on to direct an untitled haunted house movie for Amblin. But this won’t just be your average ordinary haunted house movie. This one is set to be sort of a choose-your-own-adventure-style project.

The film is set to be written by The Haunting of Hill House’s Jeff Howard, Girl in the Photograph’s Nick Simon, and Aja himself. It is based on an idea form Howard and Doctor Sleep’s Mike Flanagan. But how will this work if it’s a theatrical experience? Well, I’m glad you asked.
Amblin will be working with Kino Industries’ CtrlMovie tech. Apparently, audiences will be able to vote using an app on their phones and therefore decide what characters will do in the movie. This means that, depending on what audiences choose, runtimes, endings, and overall experiences will be different for each theater.
