Sam Fell to Direct Demonkeeper


Sam Fell (The Tale of Despereaux, Flushed Away) is attached to direct Demonkeeper, a live-action adaptation of the Royce Buckingham novel for Fox 2000, says Variety.

The script is being written by Laeta Kalogridis, who wrote the upcoming Martin Scorsese-directed Shutter Island for Paramount and Battle Angel, which James Cameron will direct for Fox.

The story follows a Seattle teen who inherits responsibility for a house filled with demons. When the youth finally breaks free of his charges to go on a date, he returns to discover that kids have broken into the house, unleashing its most vicious demon, the Beast, Killer of Lost Children.
