Matador, Midnight team for ‘Blood’

Film is first in series of Clive Barker stories

Matador Pictures and Midnight Picture Show are teaming to bring “Clive Barker’s Book of Blood” to the bigscreen.

The project represents the first in a series of “Book of Blood” stories that the two companies plan to make into a film franchise.

Sophie Ward and Jonas Armstrong will topline the pic, which is being helmed by John Harrison (“Tales From the Darkside: The Movie” ). Harrison wrote the screenplay with Darin Silverman.

Story centers on a paranormal expert who, while investigating a gruesome slaying, finds a house that is at the intersection of “highways” transporting souls to the afterlife.

L.A.-based Essential Entertainment is handling worldwide sales for “Book of Blood” and will debut the project at the upcoming European Film Market in Berlin.

Barker is producing alongside Jorge Saralegui, Joe Daley, Nigel Thomas, Lauri Apelian and Micky Macpherson.

“Book of Blood” is produced with Cinema One, the U.K.-based production and financing outfit set up by Matador and Regent Capital, with funding from Newbridge Entertainment Capital, Scottish Screen and Entertainment Motion Pictures.
