It was announced at this past July’s San Diego Comic-Con that The Orphanage producer Rodar y Rodar teamed up with Crawl to Me creator Alan Robert (bassist for the band Life of Agony) and his producing partners Jeff Mazzola (Descent) and Chris White (My Super Psycho Sweet 16 franchise) to adapt the critically acclaimed IDW Publishing graphic novel.
Victor Garcia, who helmed the upcoming Gallows Hill (starring Twilight’s Peter Facinelli), as well as Return to House on Haunted Hill, is in the director’s chair for the character-driven psychological horror film with a screenplay penned by TJ Cimfel and David White.
A new teaser one-sheet has been unveiled that displays a creepy clown ring(?) and the tagline “Protect the ones you love.”
“The film takes place in an isolated country town during the frigid winter months. It centers on a young family as they cope with a series of disturbing events that force them to question their relationship, their faith and their very existence.“
Glenn Allen, Co-Founder/VFX Producer of Emmy-award winning Brainstorm Digital (Boardwalk Empire) is on board as VFX Supervisor. Producers aim to shoot interiors on a sound stage in Spain, where Rodar is based, and exteriors in Canada.
In 2011, the “Crawl to Me” comic book miniseries, written and illustrated by Robert, was published by award-winning IDW. The series was later collected into a graphic novel and sold out within days of its January 2012 release. IDW followed up its success with three more editions: an oversized hardcover Evil Edgar Edition, and two more top-shelf versions through their IDW Limited division (See Lonmonster’s review here).
