'Night Mary' lands at Animal Logic

Company nabs rights to the mystery/horror graphic novel

Animal Logic has picked up film rights to IDW Publishing's graphic novel "Night Mary," a mystery/horror comic created by Rick Remender and Kieron Dwyer.

The story follows teenager Mary Specter, a lucid dreamer who enters the nightmares of disturbed patients at her father's sleep disorder clinic to try and help them. When one patient turns out to be a serial killer, nightmare and waking reality blend in dangerous ways.

Animal Logic CEO Zareh Nalbandian will produce. IDW's Ted Adams and Circle of Confusion's David Alpert and Rick Jacobs are exec producing.

Animal Logic, a digital design and production company, is producing the animated feature "Guardians of Ga'Hoole," directed by Zack Snyder, for Warner Bros. The company has worked on "Moulin Rouge," "300," "The Matrix" and "Happy Feet."

San Diego-based IDW publishes Hasbro's "Transformers" and "G.I. Joe," Paramount's "Star Trek," the BBC's "Doctor Who" and CBS' "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation." IDW horror series "30 Days of Night" was adapted into a feature that Sony released in 2007.

CAA represents IDW and Animal Logic.

Circle of Confusion is in production on the animated feature "Shaolin Cowboy" and in postproduction on "Saint John of Las Vegas."
