Filmmaker Mark Steensland is certainly on a roll. Fresh on the heels of his short film The Weeping Woman hitting the festival circuit this spring comes word that Steensland and screenwriter Rick Hautala have acquired the screen rights to Graham Masterton’s novel Tengu via their Chang Shao Trading Company shingle.
From the original novel’s synopsis:
In Japanese mythology TENGU is the most terrible of all demons, a living force of evil that infects its followers with the mad strength of the berserk and the capacity to survive attack from any weapon. At the close of World War II the Tengu was Japan’s most terrifying secret weapon. Now the demon is unleashed again, this time in a diabolical plot to wreak vengeance on America for the mega destruction of Hiroshima. A terrifying novel of nuclear revenge.
No word yet on how Steensland and Hautala plan to approach the story or any other details yet. But you can check out our coverage of Mark Steensland’s The Weeping Woman “>here, and be sure that we will keep you updated with all of the Japanese evil revenge demon goodness as we get it.
