Just in time for Halloween, Tyler Marceca’s thriller “The Disciple Program” has been voted to the top of the 2012 2011 Blood List. Compiled by Kailey Marsh, the Blood List features the top 13 most-liked unproduced screenplays in the horror, thriller, sci-fi and dark comedy/drama genres, as voted on by 117 feature executives who each chose their three favorite scripts of the year. Ninety-nine scripts received votes; to make the 2012 list, a script must have received at least five votes and come out within the past calendar year.

“Disciple Program” sparked a bidding war back in May, when Universal beat out Warner Bros. for the project. Mark Wahlberg is attached to star and produce with Steve Levinson; Morten Tyldum (“Headhunters”) is attached to direct.
