Universal Pictures has acquired the rights to Tag, a horror comic book published by Boom! Studios. Marc Platt will produce the adaptation along with Ross Richie and Andrew Cosby via their Boom Entertainment Inc. banner, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Tag is set in motion when an average Joe strolls down the street after a fight with his girlfriend when a random stranger tags him, handing off an ancient pagan curse. He begins to literally die, seeing his body begin to decompose every day before his very eyes. Cursed, he must either surrender or find the next victim to tag.
