Legendary Entertainment has plans to adapt the forthcoming book series, Reviver, into a feature film, Variety reports. Written by first time author Seth Patrick, Reviver is planned as a three-book series that will begin publishing in May 2013. The official description is as follows:
Reviver is set in the USA and introduces readers to Jonah Miller, one of the world’s most gifted revivers. Revivers are those who can make contact with the dead and bring them back for a short period of time to say goodbye to loved ones or, more importantly for the police, tell them who their killers were.
But while reviving the victim of a brutal murder, Jonah discovers that a sinister presence is watching from the other side. When he starts to investigate, what he uncovers threatens everything he knows...
Brendan Deneen is attached to executive produce with Alex Hedlund and Jillian Zaks producing.
