Producers Gil Adler and Shane McCarthy have picked up screen rights for the sci-fi horror comicbook Night and Fog from publisher Studio 407, according to Variety.

"This material is definitely in my strike zone in more ways than one," Adler said, noting his prior role as a producer of such horror projects as the /tv/tales-from-the-crypt/Tales From the Crypt series. "But what really appealed to me wasn't so much the genre trappings but rather the characters that really drive this story."

Set during WWII, the story revolves around an infectious mist unleashed on a military base that transforms its victims into preternatural creatures of the night. But when the survivors try to kill them, they adapt and change into something even more horrific and unstoppable.

No production date has been set.
