Variety reports that 20th Century Fox is looking to once again team with the filmmakers on a new script titled Dear Satan. The idea popped into screenwriter and babysitter Dan Ewen‘s mind on one of his child-watching stints, when the 7-year-old subject in question gave him a misspelled Christmas card. He says, “there was this cute little card, covered in candy canes and glitter. I fell in love with the idea of this note mistakenly being delivered to the Prince of Darkness and the fiery wackiness that would ensue.”
No word on yet just how much of the dark side is embraced in this film (I imagine CGI-heavy Drag Me To Hell-esque shlocky horror), but inspiration indeed comes from everywhere. While I’ll need a few more details, at this point the Farrellys just need to do something out of left field and this could be it.
