The Hollywood Reporter says that Persistent Entertainment, Pantry Films and Zenescope Entertainment are teaming up to produce an adaptation of Zenescope’s comic “The Piper.” Here’s how the company describes the comic:
Seven hundred years ago he took a horrifying revenge and paid the ultimate price for his sins. Now he’s returned to forge a deal that will cost more than your life.
Present day Florida, a prestigious boarding academy where a musically gifted but misunderstood high school student named Sean stumbles upon a mysterious book that will give him the ability to finally get back at those who have wronged him the last few years. But when Sean realizes exactly what he has summoned, he knows that the price of revenge is certainly not worth the trouble… It’s time to pay the Piper!
The project is out to writers.
