Dark Castle picks up Nye Incidents

Hack/Slash director hunts killer aliens in ‘The Nye Incidents’

Dark Castle has picked up rights to Devil’s Due graphic novel “The Nye Incidents,” from sci-fi and horror novelist Whitley Strieber.

Inspired by true events, comicbook revolves around a medical examiner on the hunt of a killer of alien abductees.

Novelist Strieber is best known for “The Wolfen” and “The Hunger,” which were adapted into pics in the 1980s, as well as alien abduction tale “Communion.” “The Coming Global Superstorm,” a book he co-wrote with Art Bell, inspired the action pic “The Day After Tomorrow.”

Dark Castle’s Joel Silver, Andrew Rona, as well as Alex Heineman, who brought the project into the shingle, will produce, along with Daniel Alter. Todd Lincoln will direct.
