Universal Pictures has gone Lights Out for Syfy Films acquiring a Jay Frasco screenplay and the rights to the manuscript of his unpublished sci-fi thriller novel, reports Deadline.
Details of the story are being kept under wraps, but the story focuses on an teenage boy trapped in his house with his sister when a deadly intruder enters the home, and mysterious events occur during the captivity.
Since Syfy Ventures partnered with Universal on Syfy Films in late 2010 with the intention of generating genre projects a cut above the Mansquito-esque staples of the Syfy Channel programming, Syfy Films has been percolating several promising feature products. They include a feature adaptation of Game Of Thrones author George R.R. Martin’s superhero anthology “Wild Cards,” which they hope will launch a franchise.
