And the 3D train keeps rolling along. Next up? Simon Crane’s supernatural thriller The Peak, which is being brought to the screen via a screenplay by horror vet Neal Marshall Stevens, whose work you’ll no doubt know from genre fare like Thir13en Ghosts, Hellraiser: Deader, The Creeps, and the spookier than it had any right to be Night Flier.
Check out the sales plot crunch and really early teaser art below.
“The Peak is a 3D supernatural thriller set in the Himalayas on the world’s most dangerous mountain. Its name is Nanga Parbat, but the locals call it “The Killer Mountain” because they believe it is haunted. Although it is only the sixth highest peak in the world, more climbers have died on its slopes than even on Mount Everest.
This is the story of an American man who led a rescue up the peak a year ago, saw things that defy explanation, and has refused to climb again. Instead, he hides out, hermit-like, in a Himalayan village waiting for the annual visit of his 10-year-old daughter.
And then his worst nightmare happens: Her plane crashes atop the peak. She’s alive. But an air rescue is out of the question. He is her only chance of survival – he has no choice but to lead a small team on a climb where no one dares to tread.”
