Corbin BleuTauvia Dawn, and Charles S. Dutton join Stephen Lang and C.J. Thomason to star in the Chiller network original movie The Monkey's Paw, adapted of the short story by W.W. Jacobs

Chiller is the entertainment network devoted exclusively to the horror/thriller genre, currently available in about 40 million homes.

Macon Blair is handling the adaptation of The Monkey's Paw, whose synopsis reads as follows:

The film centers on Jake Tilton, who acquires a mystical "monkey's paw" talisman that grants its possessor three wishes and finds his world upside down after his first two wishes result in his co-worker Tony Cobb being resurrected from the dead. When Cobb pressures Jake into using the final wish to reunite Cobb with his son, his intimidation quickly escalates intoo relentless murder -- forcing Jake to outwit his psychotic friend and save his remaining loved ones.

C.J. Thomason will play Jake Tilton, Lang will play Cobb, and Bleu will play Catfish.

Michelle Pierce as Olivia, Tauvia Dawn as Abby, and Charles S. Dutton as Detective Margolis.

Ross Otterman is producing for TMP Films, with Brett Simmons directing, and a 2013 premiere on Chiller planned. 

There have been several adaptations of The Monkey's Paw, some taking creative liberties with the story, so it's anyone's guess what this one will look like.
