I usually ignore rumors, but according to Deadline, Max Landis (son of John Landis) is working on a script to take on the life of Harry Houdini, but with a twist. What is the twist? It is to be H.P Lovecraft influence. I am interest.
However, I do find it funny that Harry Houdini did not believe in ghost, and they may be making his life store with supernatural elements.
You should also check out the Houdini code. This was a code that he and his wife, Bess, came up with. It was a code that they would use to prove it was them. Harry was very much against “mediums” , and this code could be used to show that “mediums” did not contact him or Bess from the other side.
After Harry’s death, Bess held a séance every Halloween, for 10 years. She never was able to contact Harry.
