Here’s a fascinating collection of names: Jim Carrey (The Number 23) will be executively producing the Eli Roth-directed Aleister Arcane, which he will also star in, according to Variety. The project is being made for Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and when you read the synopsis you’ll see why this is a perfect fit.
Originally a comic book written by Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), Alesiter Arcane follows, “…a group of children who befriend a bitter old man ruined and shunned by their parents. After his death, only they have the power to thwart the curse he has laid upon their town.”
No word yet on when filming will take place or what the expected release date is. The only other bits of information that have been released are that Jon Croker (The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death) is adapting the story for the screen and that the movie will be produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman along with Michael Aguilar.
You can snag the trade paperback via Amazon.
