Fox Atomic taps JT Petty for ‘Goth’

Videogame writer to direct novel adaptation

Fox Atomic has tapped vidgame scribe JT Petty to write and direct “Goth,” which is based on a best-selling Japanese novel.

Described as a gothic love story, the project revolves around two high school teens from opposite sides of the tracks who are forced to come together to take down a serial killer in their hometown.

Kadokawa, which published the original novel and manga comic, will serve as executive producer on the film. Lauren C. Weissman, Jennie Lew Tugend and Shinya Egawa from Kadokawa brought the project to Atomic. Former Kadokawa executive Golan Ramras also had a hand in bringing this project into Atomic.

Petty recently directed “The Burrowers,” an original Western horror film that is in post-production. He also wrote and directed “Soft for Digging,” “Mimic: Sentinel” and “S&Man.”
