One name who we don’t hear often enough when it comes to film adaptations is the great Peter Straub. Thankfully that’s about to change as a 3D (of course) adaptation of his novel Shadowland is now on its way. Maybe this could open the door for more of Straub’s work. We can only hope.
According to the official PFG Entertainment website, Shadowland 3D is now in pre-production starring the always fantastic Bill Nighy (Underworld, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean) and Natalie Dormer (“The Tudors”). Erik Canuel (Bon Cop, Bad Cop, TV’s “The Dead Zone”) will be at the directorial helm.
“Shadowland 3D is a fast-paced, compelling thriller based on the classic best selling novel by Peter Straub. A cross between “The Illusionist” and “The Shining”, the story is a timeless Faustian tale about a young university student who is lured by a charismatic old gentleman into the seductive world of magic but is forced to decide whether or not to join the forces of evil to save the life of his best friend.”
Look for more soon!
