Comic books continue to be snatched up for adaptations, yet the percentage that actual arrive in theaters is bleak. The Hollywood Reporter revealed tonight that Persistent Entertainment, Pantry Films and Zenescope Entertainment are teaming up to produce an adaptation of Zenescope’s comic The Piper, which aims to take a dark look at the Pied Piper of Hamelin fable. The story will center on a much-bullied high school band student who unintentionally channels the spirit of the mysterious Pied Piper and triggers terrifying consequences of his actions beyond his control.
