Looks like Bob Gale is taking a crack at adapting Scott Hampton’s graphic novel Trespassers for the big screen. Ryan E. Heppe will be producing.
The graphic novel, “centers on a group of mythbusters, set on debunking the legend of a famous allegedly haunted house. They have their scientific rationality tested when they discover demonic guardians, a gateway to hell and the fact that not all of them are exactly who they claim to be.”
Heppe told Variety, “A good horror flick needs one thing: a simple, original premise that’s terrifying as hell. Add to that obvious franchise potential, and the opportunity to combine “found footage”-style scares with traditional filmmaking frights and you’ve got something really unique.”
Bob Gale co-wrote Back To The Future which, structurally speaking, is one of the finest mainstream screenplays ever produced. Seriously. He also worked on Parts 2 and 3 of that franchise, which he admits weren’t quite as great, so let’s hope he brings his A-game.
