John Saul’s ‘God Project’ heads to film

Lucid Dreams, Julijette to produce feature adaptation of cloning tale

Production banners Lucid Dreams and Julijette Inc. are teaming to produce a feature based on John Saul’s novel “The God Project.”

Deborah Wakeham and Juliette Hagopian will produce from a screenplay by Wakeham. Producers plan to announce a director shortly and start shooting in the spring in Canada.

“The God Project,” published in 1982, is a cautionary tale set in Massachusetts.

“John Saul was ahead of his time when he wrote about the dangers of cloning in the 1980s,” Wakeham said. “We hope to show the awesome power and potentially dire consequences of what happens when the power to create human life falls into the wrong hands.”

Wakeham is a co-exec producer and writer on “Split Decision,” starring Brendan Fraser. Hagopian produced the comedy “My Awkward Sexual Adventure,” which premieres at the upcoming Toronto Film Festival.

Saul has written three dozen horror and suspense novels dating back to 1977’s “Suffer the Children.”

He is represented by APA and Andy Cohen of Grade A Entertainment.
