Dark Horse is getting together with Universal Pictures to produce horror movie The Secret, an adaptation of the graphic novel of the same name. The Secret tells of a group of high-school seniors who play a foolish prank, only to see it backfire when one of their number vanishes without a trace.
Scott Milam, who wrote the forthcoming remake of the horror film Mother’s Day, has been signed to write this adaptation. Milam’s other projects currently in development include Bedlam for RKO/Twisted Pictures, Ab Tak Chhappan for Paramount Vantage with Jinks/Cohen producing, and Karnival at Rogue with Michael Zoumas producing.
Mike Richardson, president and founder of Dark Horse, and writer of the comic on which the film is based, will produce for Dark Horse Entertainment alongside Scott Stuber, who will produce for Stuber Productions. Pam Abdy and Jared Pfeifer will oversee the project for Stuber Productions with Keith Goldberg and Chris Tongue overseeing for Dark Horse Entertainment.
Richardson told the Nest, “Scott is a terrific writer and we’re excited to be working with him on this project. The story is full of scares and surprises and goes places no one will expect.”
Universal’s Senior Vice President of Production, Scott Bernstein, and Creative Executive Dave Targan will oversee the project for the studio.
