Jason Keller has been hired to pen the adaptation of Justin Cronin’s epic 2009 novel The Passage for Fox 2000, writes Heat Vision.
Let Me In/Cloverfield director Matt Reeves came on to develop and direct the project in April, and he has settled on Keller as his collaborator.
Keller wrote the screenplay for the Marc Forster-directed Machine Gun Preacher, which Relativity Media just acquired for a fall release, and he co-wrote Relativity’s untitled Snow White project, which just began filming with Julia Roberts starring.
Cronin’s Passage, which is the first of a planned trilogy, “is set a hundred years in the future after a government experiment to lengthen the human life span ends up turning people into vampires.”
Fox 2000 picked up rights to the proposed trilogy of books in 2007. John Logan wrote the original draft of the script when Ridley Scott, who is producing the project, was also considering it as a directing gig.
