Canada's Unstable Ground Options Novel by Douglas Borton
Serena Whitney and Justin McConnell are writing the screenplay for "Kane," about a satanic traveler out to kill members of a small, dying town.
TORONTO – Canadian indie producer Unstable Ground has optioned the film rights to Douglas Borton’s horror novel Kane.
Serena Whitney and Justin McConnell will write the screenplay and co-produce along with Avi Federgreen (Still Mine, One Week).
Borton's novel portrays a satanic traveler out to kill the entire population of a small, dying town in a single night. The town's surviving members must band together to fight a seemingly unstoppable evil, or die trying.
Genre director Adam Mason and George Mihalka are on board as consulting producers. There's no word on a director or cast for the film, which is now in development.
The option deal was negotiated by McConnell for Unstable Ground, and Jane Dystel and Miriam Goderich of Dystel & Goderich Literary Management, on behalf of Borton.
