Canadian production company Unstable Ground has acquired the film rights to Douglas Borton’s horror novel “Kane”, Bloody Disgusting learned.
The project is now in development, and will be scripted by Serena Whitney and Justin McConnell (The Collapsed, Skull World). Whitney and McConnell will also co-‐produce, along with prolific Canadian-‐producer Avi Federgreen (Still Mine, One Week, High Life). The team is rounded out by two highly-respected genre directors, who currently serve as consulting producers: Adam Mason (Blood River, The Devil’s Chair, Broken), and George Mihalka (My Bloody Valentine, 24 Hour Rental). A director has yet to be named.
“Kane is a force of nature. Walking out of the desert into the dying town of Tuskett, which only 23 people still call home, he has only one purpose: to kill every resident. Relentless, stealthy, and without mercy, Kane won’t stop until every last man, woman and child is nothing but a memory. Soon the surviving townspeople must band together to fight this seemingly-‐unstoppable evil, or die trying. Brutal, action-‐ packed, and most importantly, character-‐driven, Kane is a thrilling story of survival at any cost.“
