The emergence of digital entertainment has witnessed an influx of established and greenhorn filmmakers to leave their footprint in the medium. With many stories under disparate genres evolving, filmmakers gamble on exclusivity in content. Unlike the set standards of television and film content, which debars audience to experience beyond the limits.

Sujoy Ghosh who last helmed Kaahani 2 starring Vidya Balan is currently busy with his next film Badla. Even before the release of the Amitabh Bachchan - Taapsee Pannu starrer, which is touted to be a remake of the Spanish film Contratiempo, Sujoy Ghosh has bagged another project. The famed director is returning to direct a horror series for Netflix.

Commenting about the same, a source close to the development said to a leading entertainment portal, "Yes Sujoy has gone the web series way and will be directing a horror show for Netflix. Though details of the show and its cast are being kept under wraps, the show has been titled Type Writer."

Reports suggest that the director will be directing the series only after he completes other impending projects. With the announcement of Sujoy's arrival in the realm of digital, the director has certainly joined the list of other eminent filmmakers like Zoya Akhtar, Karan Johar and Anurag Kashyap, who've made it big with their content for digital platforms.

However, further more details about the horror series, including casting is yet to be revealed. It would be interesting to see how Sujoy Ghosh will translate his vision on digital platform.
