Twentieth Century Fox has partnered with New Regency to buy supernatural horror project The Patient Who Nearly Drove Me Out of Medicine and set it up with Reynolds and Vertigo Entertainment, reports variety.com.
Reynolds will produce the project through his Maximum Effort production company along with Roy Lee and Jon Berg through Vertigo.
