We received an anonymous tip that Relativity Media (who purchased all of Rogue Pictures’ property) is fast-tracking Carey Malloy’s adaptation of Boom! Studios’ comic book TAG. Our regular tipster tells us that the studio has hired Simon Crane to direct the film, which is set in motion when an average Joe strolls down the street after a fight with his girlfriend when a random stranger tags him, handing off an ancient pagan curse. He begins to literally die, seeing his body begin to decompose every day before his very eyes. Cursed, he must either surrender or find the next victim to tag. We also have been told that Hayden Christiansen is in talk to star, although that has yet to be confirmed.
