Pulitzer Prize-Winning Playwright Adapting ‘The Demonologist’

Universal Pictures has hired of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan to adapt Andrew Pyper’s not-yet-published novel, The Demonologist for the studio, reports Vulture.

Robert Zemeckis is producing the film through his ImageMovers production company. No director is yet attached to the project, which the studio optioned last February.

‘The Demonologist’ follows a Columbia University professor who specializes in demonic literature but who himself is a profound skeptic of the occult. But when his 12 year old daughter winds up in the grip of the actual underworld, he must use his expertise in the signs and symbols of Milton’s Paradise Lost as a guide to rescue her.

In the meantime, Simon & Schuster is planning to publish “The Demonologist” on March 5, 2013 in North America.
