Charlie St. Cloud and 17 Again director Burr Steers is set to direct a feature film adaptation of the horror novel Breed for Summit Entertainment. Harry Potter producer David Heyman is also attached to the project to help bring it to life.
The book was written by Chase Novak, and the story follows "a couple who undergo an experimental fertility treatment that turns them into bloodthirsty savages." 10 years after they have twins, the kids discover there is something seriously wrong with their parents, and they set out on a dangerous search to find the truth behind their parents. This sounds like a disturbingly cool story!
Steers has worked with Zac Efron twice already, and it makes me wonder if we'll see him in this movie as well. I guess we'll find out soon enough. Here's the full description from of the book, which is sure to make a great horror movie!
Critically celebrated novelist Scott Spencer delivers a Rosemary's Baby-like novel of gothic horror, set against the backdrop of modern-day Upper East Side Manhattan.
Alex and Leslie Twisden lead charmed lives-fabulous jobs, a luxurious town house on Manhattan's Upper East Side, a passionate marriage. What they don't have is a child, and as they try one infertility treatment after the next, yearning turns into obsession. As a last-ditch attempt to make their dream of parenthood come true, Alex and Leslie travel deep into Slovenia, where they submit to a painful and terrifying procedure that finally gives them what they so fervently desire . . . but with awful consequences.
Ten years later, cosseted and adored but living in a house of secrets, the twins Adam and Alice find themselves locked into their rooms every night, with sounds coming from their parents' bedroom getting progressively louder, more violent, and more disturbing.
Driven to a desperate search for answers, Adam and Alice set out on a quest to learn the true nature of the man and woman who raised them. Their discovery will upend everything they thought they knew about their parents and will reveal a threat so horrible that it must be escaped, at any cost.
I'm going to have to read this book!
