In a press release today, ShoulderHill Films announced it has optioned an original screenplay by bestselling mystery author Andrew Klavan. Titled Bury the Dead, the supernatural thriller/horror film tells the story of a young couple who wanders into a strange village where they witness a bizarre ritual killing and realize they may be next in line. The film is scheduled to begin production in late 2010.
Last month we reported that Klavan's Homelanders young adult thriller series had been optioned.
Two of Klavan's novels have previously been adapted into movies: True Crime starring Clint Eastwood, and Don't Say a Word starring Michael Douglas, as have two of his original screenplays, One Missed Call with Ed Burns and Shannyn Sossamon, and A Shock to the System with Michael Caine.
