Summit Entertainment continues it’s investment in genre films with the acquisition of Breed, a recently published novel from Scott Spencer (under the pseudonym “Chase Novak”). According to Deadline, Summit has already hired Burr Steers (17 Again, Charlie St. Cloud) to write and direct the film, with David Heyman and Jeffrey Clifford producing.
This is likely seen as a potential franchise of films and it is mentioned that a sequel to the novel is already being developed. Breed revolves around “a couple that undergoes an experimental fertility treatment that turns them into bloodthirsty savages, leading them on a desperate quest to find a cure.” Here’s the official book synopsis:
“Critically celebrated novelist Scott Spencer delivers a Rosemary’s Baby-like novel of gothic horror, set against the backdrop of modern-day Upper East Side Manhattan.
Alex and Leslie Twisden lead charmed lives-fabulous jobs, a luxurious town house on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, »
