Intrepid Pictures (The Hitcher, Doomsday, The Strangers, The Raven) is going supernatural, buying up feature rights to a pair of young adult novels by Patrick Carman: Skeleton Creek and 13 Days to Midnight.
Intrepid has tapped Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson to adapt “Skeleton Creek,” Scholastic’s book-video hybrid series set in Skeleton Creek, Ore., where two teens encounter a potentially supernatural entity while exploring an abandoned gold mine, launching them into an investigation of their town’s long-buried secrets.
Rebecca Sonnenshine’s to pen the screenplay for “13 Days to Midnight,” published by Little Brown Books. The story centers on a boy who’s granted the power of indestructibility from his dying foster father.
Sonnenshine’s credits include Within, The Haunting of Molly Hartley and American Zombie.
