September 17, 2013


Universal Pictures' take on Electronic Arts' Dante's Inferno video game has found a helmer in Fede Alvarez. Deadline reports that the Evil Dead director will tackle the adaptation of the game, itself loosely inspired by the first third of Dante Alighieri's 14th century epic poem, "The Divine Comedy."

Released in 2010, Dante's Inferno reimagines Alighieri as a Templar Knight traversing the nine circles of Hell to rescue the soul of his beloved Beatrice. Although the plot of the game represents a significant departure from the original text, the specific layout of Hell is directly inspired by Alighieri's words.

Marc Abraham and Eric Newman are set to produce alongside EA's Patrick O’Brien with Jay Basu (The Dinosaur Project, Fast Girls) having turned in the most recent draft of the screenplay.
