Cronin’s “The Passage” Lands Matt Reeves to Direct
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for someone to drive a stake through the heart of any vampires that sparkle so the big screen can be claimed once again by vampires as they’re meant to be – bloodthirsty, evil beasts. Fortunately, Deadline brings word that those vampires might finally be finding their way back to the theater.
Justin Cronin’s excellent novel, The Passage, was snatched up by FOX back in 2007, and the project looks to finally be getting under way with Matt Reeves being chosen as the director for the movie adaptation. A script has already been provided by John Logan, but a new writer is being brought in for a rewrite. It’s not a slam against Logan; he’s just too busy with James Bond 23 right now to polish up the script.
The Passage starts out the same way many horror stories do. The government gets all excited and steps in when they discover that a group of terminally ill cancer patients were cured after being bitten by some South American bats. Uncle Sam starts experimenting, things go wrong in a big way, and we end up with an army of nearly indestructible vampires that also happen to be telepathic. While the book starts out on a well-worn path, it soon branches off into new territory.
Check out the review of Cornin’s The Passage by BSC’s own DragonWomanT, and keep an eye out for some truly unsexy vampires as this project starts to take off.
