It’s been over two years since there was anything to report in regard to a live action adaptation of the Devil’s Due graphic novel The Nye Incidents. When last we checked in, Dark Castle was in the mix along with director Todd Lincoln. Now a few things have changed.

According to THR The Nye Incidents, a comic co-created by Communion author Whitley Strieber, is finally heading to the big screen.

Director Todd Lincoln, producer Daniel Alter and RKO are teaming up to adapt Nye, a Devil’s Due comic written by Strieber and Craig Spector and set in the world of alien abductees. It’s a world well known to Strieber, the author of horror novels The Hunger and The Wolfen, who then wrote about his own experience being abducted by extra-terrestrials in Communion.

Nye centers on a seen-it-all and logical medical examiner whose faith in the rational is shattered when she runs afoul a brutal murder of a supposed alien abductee. The case puts her on the path chasing a serial killer working in the alien abductee community who may or may not be human.

The goal is to make, in a way, an anti-alien invasion movie, something that doesn’t veer into conspiracy/”X-Files” territory yet remains spooky and terrifying.

More as it comes.

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

    Spector is awesome and Strieber is mostly awesome, the exception being when he’s writing about his (ahem) abduction experiences.

    Still, colour me interested.
