Adaptation of acclaimed novel finds director
In mid-2008, producers Chad Feehan (All the Boys Love Mandy Lane) and Amanda Micallef took the screen rights to William Gay’s novel “Twilight.”
Two years later, there is some movement on the project. According to Screen Daily, Feehan will direct the adaptation himself and the film will be called Beyond the Pale.
Garnering kudos from Stephen King, the story follows two teens, living in a small Southern town, who discover the local undertaker, Fenton Breece, has been defiling the dead (necrophilia anyone?). They obtain incriminating photos of Breece’s wrongdoings, but the fiend sets loose a convicted murder and local strongman to destroy the evidence.
