People will be able to vote for Stirling's photo (you can find it here) once every 24 hours until Oct. 1. Users can create a log-in on the site here or they can log in with Facebook or Twitter.
If Stirling is selected, Eva Longoria, Jamie Foxx, Biz Stone, Georgina Chapman or James Murphy could direct a film inspired by the image under the mentorship of Ron Howard.
And how about Stirling's inspirition for "Stairwell Entity?" Here's what Stirling had to say:
"The inspiration for the photo is taken from movies like Poltergeist. There is a scene in Poltergeist where ghosts are filmed coming down the steps of the family home," Stirling explained. "I guess I had that sort of in my mind as I took this," he said, adding that Salem and its associations with hauntings/witches and the occult" were also inspirations for the photo.
