Jennifer Love Hewitt to Helm Ghostly Tale 'Wait Till Helen Comes'
After a hook-handed, fisherman killer never forgot what she did last summer, Jennifer Love Hewitt went on to become the "Ghost Whisperer" for all the geriatrics who watch CBS. Now the actress will go from ghost whispering to telling a ghost story as Variety reports she is set to make her feature directorial debut with Wait Till Helen Comes. Written by Sanchez Mandryk and based on the novel of the same name by Mary Downing Hahn, the story focuses on a family who has recently moved to the Maryland countryside where the tormented ghost of a little girl suddenly becomes involved with the young daughters of the family.
Even creepier is the house in which this family has moved was once a church and the little girl spirit only seems to be interesting in haunting the 12-year old daughter in the family, but forms an intimate though dangerous friendship with her 7-year-old stepsister. Sounds like this could end up like a mix of The Good Son and countless ghost stories that use the innocence of children to make a dangerous spirit even more scary. If you're skeptical of Love Hewitt's directing talents, apparently the actress has had some experience behind the camera directing several episodes of "Ghost Whisperer," so she's primed for a feature film now. Anyone interested?
