Clive Barker is teaming with Walden Media to develop and produce an original young adult thriller centered on the ghost of Edgar Allan Poe through his Seraphim Films.
The film will revolve around a group of teenagers who attempt to uncover what happened during the last two weeks of Poe's life. The Hollywood Reporter notes they inadvertently trigger a curse that unlocks Poe's nightmares from which they must escape.
Barker is currently writing and producing a remake of his film Hellraiser for Dimension Films. He and his Midnight Picture Show horror label are developing and packaging several of his short stories from his horror collection, The Books of Blood.
