This film is going to be directed by Jon Favreau, who has been in the acting world quite awhile and has a very good filmography. This will be his 21st movie as a director and 24th as a producer, so he will hopefully be producing a great film, especially since he directed The Jungle Book live action adaptation and that was a hit.
Maybe I've become too desensitized over the years to enjoy modern "horror" games. Lately, I've just felt that such games have either fit into two categories: "cliche horror trope bingo" and/or "trying way too hard." I'd say a perfect example of the first of those categories is the recently released The Evil Within 2. I honestly don't know what is impressing the gaming news giants to give it a high score... though I think IGN would be impressed with a game about paint drying.
