'Tag,' he's it: Malloy booked at Uni
EmptyUniversal Pictures has hired Carey Malloy to adapt "Tag," a horror comic book published by Boom! Studios. Marc Platt is producing the adaptation along with Ross Richie and Andrew Cosby via their Boom Entertainment banner.
The story in "Tag" is set in motion when an average Joe strolls down the street after a fight with his girlfriend and a random stranger tags him, handing off an ancient pagan curse in which he begins to die, watching his body decompose every day. Cursed, he must either surrender or find the next victim to tag.
The comic book was written by comics veteran Keith Giffen and drawn by Kody Chamberlain.
Universal's Donna Langley, Jeff Kirschenbaum and David Ortiz are overseeing.
Malloy's "Alone" also is set up at Rogue Pictures, with Platinum Dunes and Stephanie Johnson producing. He is repped by WMA.
