Michael Bartlett (The Zombie Diaries) is officially back with another ghoulish tale of death, horror, and the macabre titled Grandmaster, and we have the first details and a look at some early concept art for you!
“The script is based on true events that occurred in 1990, when Grandmaster Raymond Keene was approached by British Police to help them solve the disappearance of a young woman,” Bartlett tells us. “Her abductor signed a confession but would not reveal the location of the body – however, he would communicate all the necessary information through a cryptic chess diagram. The story made front page news all over the world including London and New York. Paramount tried to buy the rights, but Ray refused, opting to go for a UK TV series deal which collapsed … and here we are today.”
It’s said to be a combination of Se7en meets Zodiac meets Da Vinci Code, and we’ll be keeping a really close eye on this one. More soon. In the interim check out the artwork below.
