Best-selling author David Morrell has another book headed into movie production. The award winning Morrell, whose best known for his work with “First Blood,” the novel in which Rambo was created, has signed a deal with Nashville based Bloody Moon Films for movie rights to the 1979 novel The Totem.

The Totem is a horror thriller about a Wyoming ranch town called Potter’s Field, where a virus is unleashed and spreads through bites by infected people. Police chief Nathan Slaughter is thrown into a vortex tunnel of terror trying to unveil why animals become savage, children become insane and the entire town turns into a frenzy of violence.

Production and cast selection on the three million dollar movie project is currently underway, with filming slated to begin this spring. Blood Moon founder Ben Dixon will serve as the film’s director.

In addition to success with the Rambo film franchise starring Sylvester Stallone, Morrell has written more than 30 books and has 18 million copies in print.
