‘The Drive’ helmer Nicolas Winding Refn is in talks to direct horror film ‘The Bringing’ for Sony.

The project is inspired by the mysterious death of Elisa Lam at the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles and Refn, who is often criticised for violence in his films, is said to be a fan of the genre, reported the Wrap.

Matt Tolmach of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ fame is producing with Daniela Cretu of First Born Films. Brandon and Phillip Murphy wrote the script.

‘The Bringing’ was inspired by the viral video of Elisa Lam, a woman who was taped exhibiting strange behaviour in an elevator at the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles before she was found dead in the water tank on the roof.
