Humans. For as long as we've been inhabiting this planet someone or something has been wanting their chance to munch on our flesh. Why this is is anyone's guess as we're notoriously filthy animals, but hey, whatever.
Variety reports that Swedish helmer Mikael Marcimain will adapt Swedish suspense bestseller Stallo by Stefan Spjut.
Stallo, which has been compared with Let the Right One In, depicts a grey everyday Sweden with supernatural elements. Instead of vampires, fellow countryman Marcimain will have to deal with “stallos,” human-like creatures who like to eat people.
The sophomore novel already sold to 15 countries before its local release last week from Albert Bonniers, Sweden’s biggest publishing house. The film's producer is Anna Croneman at Stockholm-based production company Bob Film. Croneman told local newspapers the adaptation would be an international production, set to shoot in 2014-15.

Stallo stretches the borders of reality. Sounds good to me, and that’s exactly why I’m here – to inform you that Swedish director Mikael Marcimain (Call Girl) will adapt Stefan Spjut‘s bestselling novel titled Stallo. Boring – you say? Well, wait ’till you hear that we’re actually talking about a people-eating creature novel!
At this moment not much is known about the whole thing except that Anna Croneman from Stockholm-based production company Bob Film is on board to produce the project. The good thing is that Marcimain plans to shoot the movie in 2014.
What also sounds interesting is that Spjut’s novel has already been compared with Let The Right One In, which means – expect to see everyday Sweden with supernatural elements.
No vampires or zombies this time, only stallos (human-like creatures who like to eat people)!
Here’s the official description of Stallo novel, hope you’ll like it:
