Universal Pictures has picked up the rights to the cryptozoological travelogue, Three Men Seeking Monsters by Nick Redfern; Jon, Doug and Dan Heder will produce through their Greasy Entertainment as well as Atchity Entertainment International.

The book, Three Men Seeking Monsters: Six Weeks in Pursuit of Werewolves, Lake Monsters, Giant Cats, Ghostly Devil Dogs, and Ape-Men, tells how the author, a baldheaded punker, and his two friends - a goth herpetologist who dresses like a pirate and a 6-foot-6-inch, 400-pound behemoth who wears a Sherlock Holmes cap - set off on a six-week, alcohol-infused road trip investigating monster myths around Great Britain, notes The Hollywood Reporter.

No word on a production schedule for Three Men Seeking Monsters.
