Universal and Robert Zemeckis’ Imagemovers just found their next project together, an adaptation of the (apparently) highly-sought-after Demonologist. Adaptation? Yes. But the book isn’t out yet so don’t worry if you’re unfamiliar.
Per Deadline, “Universal has acquired ‘Demonologist’, a novel manuscript by Andrew Pyper. The book will be sold at auction shortly, but most important the film project will be produced by ImageMovers partners Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke and Steve Starkey. The studio made a preemptive deal for the rights.”
In the book, “When a professor who studies “Paradise Lost” accepts a free trip to Italy, a demonic spirit appears to kill his daughter, and he must go on a dark journey of discovery in hopes of getting her back.”
No word yet on if Zemeckis is planning to direct or if he’ll stick to the producing side of things.
