Stevens inks comic book deal

Studio 407 projects may be adapted for film

Horror pic scribe Neal Marshall Stevens has inked a deal with Studio 407 to create two comicbooks, “Havoc Brigade” and “Demon Squad,” which the company may adapt into features.

Stevens, who penned the remake of “Thirteen Ghosts” for Joel Silver’s Dark Castle Entertainment and MGM’s planned sequel to “The Amityville Horror,” initially paired with Studio 407 to write the Eric Vallete-helmed horror film “Hunter,” which the company co-produced with Stallion Pictures (“Punisher: War Zone”). “Hunter” will be released later this year.

The futuristic action-thriller “Havoc Brigade” is due out in stores on March 25, while action scarefest “Demon Squad” is expected later this year.

Stevens, like many in the biz, was attracted to the notion of creating his own graphic novels because “only around one in 10” of the scripts he’s written have wound up on the bigscreen. With comicbooks, “I knew going in that the scripts that I wrote would actually be produced, and that the work would get in front of an audience,” he said.

Studio 407 is currently producing with Myriad Pictures the pics “Hybrid” and “The Night Projectionist,” based on its own graphic novels of the same name.
