Gotham Group buys rights to werewolf tale

Percy's 'Red Moon' posits persecuted lycanthropes

The Gotham Group has optioned bigscreen rights to Benjamin Percy’s werewolf book proposal “Red Moon.”

Described as an alternate history tome, story is set in a post-9/11 world of xenophobia in which the long-persecuted Lycans live among humans. Story kicks off with a Lycan uprising that results in a clash of civilizations.

Book proposal was acquired in a pub house bidding war by Grand Central. Lit deal is pegged at $500,000. Gotham was slipped a copy of the proposal by Percy’s publishing agent Holly Frederick of Curtis Brown and pounced on the material.

Gotham’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Lindsay Williams will produce and are currently out to writers. Shingle’s credits include “The Spiderwick Chronicles” and the upcoming Taylor Lautner starrer “Abduction.”

Percy, a creative writing professor at Iowa State U., is the author of wilderness adventure story “The Wilding” and has published two books of short stories and a graphic novel, “Refresh, Refresh.”
