It was back in the middle of Comic-Con last year when Warner Brothers announced that it had acquired the screen rights to A Discovery of Witches, the bestselling novel by Deborah Harkness. Now, several months later, this witches brew is finally bubbling.

According to Variety, David Auburn (best known as the author of the play Proof, for which won the 2001 Tony Award for Best Play and the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for drama and subsequently adapted for the 2005 film) has come on to adapt Harkness’ novel for WB and producers Denise Di Novi and Allison Greenspan.

The debut novel is about a centuries-old vampire, a spellbound witch, and a mysterious manuscript that draws them together.

The studio is obviously looking to tap the fantasy vein now that the Harry Potter series has concluded so look for more on this one soon!

We’ve been talking about the new zombie flick starring Ellen Page entitled The Cured for quite some time now, and we’ll soon be able to sink our teeth into it courtesy of IFC Films.

The flick stars Page (Juno, Hard Candy), Sam Keeley (Anthropoid, In the Heart of the Sea), Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (Avengers: Infinity War, The Infiltrator), and Paula Malcomson (The Hunger Games trilogy, “Ray Donovan”) and is directed and written by David Freyne in his first feature film. Look for it in theaters and On Demand on February 23, 2018​.

Synopsis:
What happens when the undead return to life? In a world ravaged for years by a virus that turns the infected into zombie-like cannibals, a cure is at last found and the wrenching process of reintegrating the survivors back into society begins. Among the formerly afflicted is Senan (Sam Keeley), a young man haunted by the horrific acts he committed while infected. Welcomed back into the family of his widowed sister-in-law (Ellen Page), Senan attempts to restart his life—but is society ready to forgive him and those like him? Or will fear and prejudice once again tear the world apart?
