Universal Pictures has hired Carey Malloy to adapt the screenplay on the horror, Tag.

The film is about an average Joe who strolls down the street after a fight with his girlfriend and a random stranger tags him, handing off an ancient pagan curse. Based on the Boom! Studios comic book by Keith Giffen and drawn by Kody Chamberlain, he begins to literally die, seeing his body decompose every day before his eyes; cursed, he must either surrender or find the next victim to tag, notes The Hollywood Reporter.

Tag has no production schedule.
