Twen­ti­eth Cen­tury Fox has part­nered with New Re­gency to buy su­per­nat­u­ral hor­ror project “The Pa­tient Who Nearly Drove Me Out of Medicine” and set it up with Ryan Reynolds and Ver­tigo Entertainment.

Reynolds will pro­duce through his Max­i­mum Ef­fort pro­duc­tion com­pany along with Roy Lee and Jon Berg through Ver­tigo. Jasper De­Witt wrote the novella “The Pa­tient Who Nearly Drove Me Out of Medicine”, orig­i­nally pub­lished on Red­dit No Sleep, about an ide­al­is­tic young doc­tor who tries to solve a mys­tery and heal its most dif­fi­cult pa­tient.

The bid­ding for the project was de­scribed as very com­pet­i­tive with sev­eral stu­dios and other pro­duc­tion com­pa­nies chas­ing the prop­erty. Reynolds is at­tached only as a pro­ducer. No ac­tors or di­rec­tors have been hired. (RTRS)
