CBS Films has acquired the rights to Winchester, a new horror film based on the real-life hauntings of Winchester Mansion in California. Mike Fleming Jr. of Deadline writes, “Helen Mirren plays firearms heiress Sarah Winchester, who was convinced that she was haunted by the souls killed at the hands of the Winchester repeating rifle. After the sudden deaths of her husband and child, she threw herself into the 24/7 construction of an enormous mansion designed to keep the evil spirits at bay. But when skeptical San Francisco psychiatrist Eric Price is dispatched to the estate to evaluate her state of mind, he discovers that her obsession might not be so insane after all. The film will take audiences inside the labyrinth-like Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, which is believed to be one of the most haunted places in the world.” (Photo credit: Winchester Mystery House, LLC)
