CBS Films has acquired Hellfest, a script by William Penick and Chris Sey, for “The Walking Dead” executive producer Gale Anne Hurd, who will produce the picture under her Valhalla Entertainment banner.
The story is about what happens at a Halloween theme park when one of the costumed characters is actually killing the patrons, who think it’s all part of the show. Penick and Sey wrote the script from a concept by Valhalla’s Ben Roberts, who’ll be executive producer.
This is yet another deal for Hurd (pictured below with “The Walking Dead” star Andrew Lincoln), who recently joined forces with Aspen Comics on Dead Man’s Run, a series that will be written by Greg Pak. In it Hell is an underground prison for the reanimated deal, and a man enlists a team of the damned to escape and save his innocent sister’s soul.
Look for more on both projects soon!
