This alone promises a creepy and sadistic outlook of what is to come. No word on the plot has been given, but the studio is currently seeking writers for the project.
“We’re looking forward to working with Scott to make an insane, terrifying and weirdly adorable movie,” said Grahame-Smith.
“The story really lends itself to being a movie and it taps into a largely unexplored niche of horror that a lot of people will be able to relate to,” said series creator Scott Cawthon.
