“DEVIL’s” Dowdle Brothers go “SO BELOW”


THE POUGHKEEPSIE TAPES and DEVIL helmers John and Drew Dowdle will co-write, as John directs, Legendary Pictures’ first jaunt into low, low budget genre.

Being described as a “micro-budget” effort*, Legendary, who’s probably best known for their epic action/superhero fare like THE DARK KNIGHT and Guillero del Toro’s upcoming PACIFIC RIM, will produce AS ABOVE, SO BELOW. The film will take advantage of a particularly eerie setting, Paris’ catacombs, as two archaeologists head in search of lost treasure.

The catacombs (seen above), properly called l’Ossuaire Municipal, hold the remains of six million transferred into disused quarries as the Cemetery of the Innocents had become a health issue for the city.


*“Micro for them, as the film is reported to be budgeted within $5-10 million
