Warren Adler’s ‘Cult’ in the Works as Movie Adaptation

Alex McAulay has come on board to adapt Warren Adler’s novel “Cult” for Grey Eagle Productions.

The 2002 novel, published as “Cult: A Novel of Brainwashing and Death,” recounts the efforts of a husband to rescue his young and impressionable wife, who has been lured by her fanatical sister into the “Glory Cult” — a ruthless group in Oregon run by a charismatic guru.

McAulay is also writing the screenplay for Adler’s “The War of the Roses: The Children,” the sequel to the 1989 film, co-produced by Grey Eagle’s Jonathan Robert Adler and David Permut of Permut Presentations.

McAulay’s credits include HBO’s “Eastbound and Down” and he is writing a pilot in collaboration with Jody Hill for a new HBO series to be produced by Rough House Pictures.

Other Grey Eagle projects include “Target Churchill,” co-developed with Solution Entertainment Group; “Mourning Glory,” to be adapted by Karen Leigh Hopkins; and TV series “Capitol Crimes,” based on Adler’s Fiona FitzGerald mystery series, co-developed by Sennet Entertainment with Eric Overmyer as showrunner.

McAulay is represented by WME and Circle of Confusion.
