Patrick Smith Kelly has been brought aboard to adapt Benighted, a supernatural thriller novel by Kit Whitfield, according to Variety. Graham King is producing along with Andrew Adamson for Warner Bros. through King's new production company, GK Films.
The film is set in an alternate reality in which 90% of the population are werewolves and the minority human population is responsible for keeping the peace during the full moon. The book follows the story of Lola, a member of the police force investigating a series of suspicious, unsolved murders.
King acquired the book in 2006. Adamson is looking to direct the movie.
