Don Coscarelli is preparing to direct the David Wong novel John Dies at the End. According to an interview in Apex Digest, Wong had just recently sold the rights of his novel to the horror master.

John Dies at the End centers on John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. These two misfits join forces in an attempt to stop the destruction of mankind from an unknown silent invasion.
