Universal Pictures has picked up the rights to an unpublished novel by Andrew Pyper called Demonologist. The film is set to be produced by Robert Zemeckis' production company ImageMovers. I just have to say that Zemeckis was a great filmmaker before he got caught up in that motion capture technology.
Here's the plot of the story according to Deadline, "When a professor who studies Paradise Lost accepts a free trip to Italy, a demonic spirit appears to kill his daughter, and he must go on a dark journey of discovery in hopes of getting her back."
That sounds like it could be a crazily horrific movie to me, especially since I have daughters of my own. I'm not sure really what to expect from this film, but it's obviously going to be a dark and twisted journey.
