Adam Green Set to Bake Us a Killer Pizza and More Horror on the Way from 1492 Pictures

Adam GreenGood news, horror heads. Chris Columbus’ 1492 Pictures and Korean shingle CJ Entertainment are moving forward with three horror films this year, two of which are sporting some very familiar genre names.

According to Variety:

The two companies plan to produce a big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s “The Graveyard Book,” which Neil Jordan (“Interview with the Vampire”) is writing and will direct. Project revolves around an orphan raised by ghosts.

Columbus will pen “Carpe Demon,” based on Julie Kenner’s “Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom,” about a stay-at-home mother who is charged with cleaning up her demon-ridden small town. Scribes Kevin and Dan Hageman, Michael Dougherty, and Dan Harris had previously taken stabs at the script.

Adam Green (“Hatchet”) will pen “Killer Pizza,” an action comedy about a 14-year-old who lands a summer job at Killer Pizza, which is a front for a monster-hunting organization.

Pretty sweet! We’ll take Green’s horror comedy about pizza serving monster fighters any day over the damned near guaranteed to be lame Platinum Dunes Monster Squad remake.

Look for more on these projects soon.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Usually movies starring children leave me cold (Dante’s being the exception); but Green might pull this off. The concept works for me.

    I can Definitly believe that adam can do 80’s escapism pretty well, and as for Hatchet…I Loved it, it definitly brought back that early 80’s Dumb as shit but Fun gory Slasher Movie escapism…I’m actually looking forward to Hatchet 2 even though the poster was the horror cinematic equivalent of blue balls

    Well I’ll say this: Adam definitely has an eye for the dumb eighties feel. “Hatchet” was lame ass but it had the right tone for that eighties escapism.

    I have to say that I think Adam Green is perfect for a PG-13ish 80s teen monster type movie. I think he will knock out the laughs with the scares.
