'Night Projectionist' film in development

Myriad Pictures has first options on Studio 407's comic

The comic book company Studio 407 is developing its comic horror miniseries "The Night Projectionist" as a feature film.

Myriad Pictures has first options on the finished screenplay, which would become the second title produced under Studio 407's first-look deal with Myriad. The two outfits' first project together, "Hybrid," is tentatively scheduled to begin production this year.

"Projectionist" is set on Halloween in a small-town movie theater slowly filling up with vampires.

The first comic book issue of "Projectionist" is slated to be released in stores in February.
