Variety reports that Scott Hampton’s supernatural graphic novel “Trespassers” is coming to theaters. Ryan E. Heppe will produce and Bob Gale (Back to the Future) will write the script.
According to the trade, the “story centers on a group of mythbusters, set on debunking the legend of a famous allegedly haunted house. They have their scientific rationality tested when they discover demonic guardians, a gateway to hell and the fact that not all of them are exactly who they claim to be.”
“A good horror flick needs one thing: a simple, original premise that’s terrifying as hell,” Heppe said. “Add to that obvious franchise potential, and the opportunity to combine “found footage”-style scares with traditional filmmaking frights and you’ve got something really unique.”
