Amazon Studios is very serious about being involved in the horror movie making business and today unveiled more details on its plans to go forward with the frights. Read on to see what they have cooking!
From the Press Release
Amazon Studios, the original content arm of Amazon.com, Inc., has optioned the rights to author Ania Ahlborn’s popular horror novel Seed – a top seller of 47North – the science fiction, fantasy, and horror imprint of Amazon Publishing.
Amazon Studios has added the project to its development slate and will begin testing various big screen adaptations of the spine-tingling Southern Gothic suspense tale of an ordinary man with a demon on his back. The move to option a novel in circulation is a first for Amazon Studios, which up to this point has optioned only movie scripts and episodic series projects submitted to Amazon Studios.
With nothing but the clothes on his back—and something horrific snapping at his heels—Jack Winter fled his rural Georgia home when he was still just a boy. Watching the world he knew vanish in a trucker’s rearview mirror, he thought he was leaving an unspeakable nightmare behind forever. But years later the bright new future he’s built suddenly turns pitch black, as something fiendishly familiar looms dead ahead.
When Jack, his wife, Aimee, and their two small children survive a violent car crash, it seems like a miracle. But Jack knows what he saw on the road that night, and it wasn’t divine intervention. The profound evil from his past won’t let them die…at least not quickly. It’s back, and it’s hungry, ready to make Jack pay for running, to work its malignant magic on his angelic youngest daughter, and to whisper a chilling promise: “I’ve always been here, and I’ll never leave.”
