Dark Castle picks up ‘Incidents’

WB horror label nabs rights to graphic novel

Dark Castle is turning to aliens as its newest bogeymen.

The Warner Bros.-based horror label has picked up rights to Devil’s Due graphic novel “The Nye Incidents,” from sci-fi and horror novelist Whitley Strieber. Todd Lincoln will direct.

Inspired by true events, comicbook revolves around a medical examiner on the hunt of a killer of alien abductees.

No scribe has yet been hired to pen the script.

Strieber is best known for “The Wolfen” and “The Hunger,” which were adapted into pics in the 1980s, as well as alien abduction tale “Communion.” “The Coming Global Superstorm,” a book he co-wrote with Art Bell, inspired Fox’s tentpole “The Day After Tomorrow.”

Dark Castle’s Joel Silver, Andrew Rona, as well as Alex Heineman, who brought the project into the shingle, will produce, along with Daniel Alter, who also has “Johnny Quest” set up at Warner Bros. with Adrian Askarieh. Dan Lin is shepherding the project there. Alter co-produced Fox’s actioner “Hitman” and has adaptations of the Devil’s Due books “Hack/Slash” and “Lost Squad” set up at Relativity-owned Rogue Pictures.

“Nye” is the first project that Dark Castle has acquired since Rona, formerly prexy at Rogue, joined the company.

Genre label has creepy-kid pic “Orphan” bowing this summer.

Lincoln, who had previously been attached to a remake of “The Fly” at Fox Searchlight, will also serve as a producer on “Nye.” He is attached to helm “Hack/Slash” for Rogue.
