Myriad Pictures is reteaming with comicbook publisher Studio 407 to bring the horror series “The Night Projectionist” to the bigscreen.
“Projectionist” marks the second title produced under Studio 407’s first-look deal with Myriad — the first being the comicbook “Hybrid,” which is tentatively scheduled to begin production later this year.
Story takes place on Halloween Eve in a small-town movie theater, where an all-night Draculathon draws throngs of moviegoers who suddenly find themselves locked inside the theater, which is slowly filling with vampires.
Myriad’s recent credits include the Catherine Zeta-Jones starrer “Death Defying Acts” and the biopic “Kinsey.” The financing, production and foreign sales outfit has also enjoyed box-office success in the horror genre with such pics as “Jeepers Creepers 2.”
The first issue of “The Night Projectionist” miniseries will hit shelves in February.
