Based on the novel by James Robert Smith
Author James Robert Smith tells blogger Robert Hood that screenwriter Travis Malloy has been adapting Smith’s novel, “The Flock,” for the big screen.
Malloy previously penned 2009’s Pandorum.
“The Flock” was a property first optioned in 2009 by AngryFilms’ Don Murphy and Susan Montford.
The book tells the story of a group of highly intelligent giant prehistoric birds discovered in the Florida Everglades who are intent on protecting their ancient home when faced with encroachment by theme park developers.
While “The Flock” has a screenwriter, that doesn’t mean it’s happening just yet. Apparently, they’re out to a “short list” of directors now, however, the project is still in development.
