Director Paul Campion (The Devil’s Rock) is presenting his plan for the big screen adaptation of Dark Hollow at the Fantasia International Film Festival today. Cross your fingers and hope for the production to get a green light. Paul will be posting live updates to the Dark Hollow movie Facebook page, so make sure you “Like” it so you don’t miss the news if and when it breaks. I won’t be posting the news here, because…
…I’ll be heading to New York later today for a meeting tomorrow morning regarding potential film adaptations of The Rising and Dead Sea. Now… don’t get all worked up yet. The Rising has been optioned several times, but has never managed to get off the ground. Maybe things will be different this time, but it’s way too early to celebrate.
Hopefully, I’ll also return from New York with some news on a DVD release date for Ghoul. If you haven’t yet, make sure you snag one of these limited edition collectible screenplay and storyboard books from the Ghoul movie, which ship next week, signed by me.
Finally, the film adaptation of Fast Zombies Suck begins shooting in Central PA in just a few weeks. We will be putting out a call for extras very soon, so if you’ve ever wanted to play a zombie in a Brian Keene movie (or in this case, play a person playing a zombie at a zombie walk in a Brian Keene movie) stay tuned.
For those keeping track, that leaves us with Ghoul and The Ties That Bind both having been filmed, Fast Zombies Suck in production, and Dark Hollow, Castaways, Darkness on the Edge of Town, The Cage, and The Siqqusim Who Stole Christmas in development.
