UNIVERSAL HOUSE ANOTHER PSYCHO
Universal Studios learned the hard way that it was quite unhealthy to practice a shot-for-shot remake of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho in 1998, their love affair with the very word 'psycho' hasn't diminished any in the last five years though.
According to Variety, the studio has optioned the rights to the 1991 three-part comic miniseries The Psycho penned by James Hudnall and painted by Dan Brereton. Based on the comic of the same name, The Psycho focused on a man who succumbs to the government, becomes a superhuman agent, all to prove himself innocent of a crime he didn't commit. Bizarro and freakish characters good and bad subsequently enter his life.
If you're familiar with Brereton's Nocturnals then you know his art has a macabre and moody bent that many of us horror nuts have an affinity for. The Psycho is no different.
Hudnall and Brereton are repped by Circle of Confusion's David Engel who'll be picking up on producing duties whereas Universal's director of development Jeffrey Kirschenbaum will guide its progress.
