More news coming in for the latest vampire-themed adaptation for Matt Reeves, The Passage. A writer has been found to handle the transition from page-to-screen. Read on for the details on just who the scribe is.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jason Keller (Machine Gun Preacher; Relativity’s upcoming untitled Snow White project) has been hired to pen the adaptation of Justin Cronin’s epic 2009 novel The Passage (review here) for Fox 2000.
Reeves will be supervising the rewrite of a script originally penned by John Logan.
An epic and gripping tale of catastrophe and survival, The Passage is the story of Amy – abandoned by her mother at the age of six, pursued and then imprisoned by the shadowy figures behind a government experiment of apocalyptic proportions. But Special Agent Wolgast, the lawman sent to track her down, is disarmed by the curiously quiet girl — and risks everything to save her. As the experiment goes nightmarishly wrong, Wolgast secures her escape — but he can’t stop society’s collapse. And as Amy walks alone, across miles and decades, into a future dark with violence and despair, she is filled with the mysterious and terrifying knowledge that only she has the power to save the ruined world.
