The Warded Man is Coming to Protect You


From the Resident Evil team

Paul W. S. Anderson and Jeremy Bolt are stepping up their producing game. As both prep the next chapter in the Resident Evil franchise – Resident Evil: Afterlife – the pair have announced they’re bringing Peter V. Brett’s novel “The Warded Man” to the screen through their production outfit Impact.

The book is set in an undetermined future where mankind is beset by nightly attacks from demonkind and has been thrown back into a feudal state. Three young people emerge with the potential power to turn the tide, including the title character, a man who has wards (spells) tattooed on his body.

Perhaps more fantasy than “horror,” per se, however, the “demons” should yield some tasty FX.
