CLIVE BARKER DREADS
Clive Barker fan site Revelations is the first to run with the story.
Last November, 20th Century Fox announced that they were collaborating with Barker's Seraphim Film for a feature film adaptation of 'Dread' (one of the many stories in the 'Books of Blood' series). They were seeking a writer to pen the tale of an experiment in fear gone wrong. Enter Drew McWeeny (aka Moriarty from Aint-it-cool) and Scott Swan, they've just put the final touches on their deal to adapt the story.
'Dread,' as you may or may not know, was previously adapted for the 'Books of Blood' anthology film, a project that brought many talented writers to the table including Bill Condon ('Gods and Monsters', 'Chicago')...but it's a dead project nevertheless.
So, there you have it, fiends. An official announcement will no doubt be forthcoming, but since the story is now 'out there,' we may as well get you informed.
