While Stephen King is having a monstrous renaissance, it’s about time we see some new adaptations from horror maestro Dean Koontz.
Tomorrow Studios, the producer behind apocalyptic drama “Snowpiercer”, is working up a television adaptation of Dean Koontz’s latest thriller novel “Devoted”, writes Deadline.
“The book, which was published by Amazon Publishing in March 2020, tells the story of Woody Bookman, a boy who hasn’t spoken a word in his eleven years of life, and who believes a monstrous evil was behind his father’s death and now threatens him and his mother.
“When Kipp, a uniquely gifted dog with a heart as golden as his breed, hears the boy, who communicates like he does without speaking, Kipp knows he needs to find him before it’s too late. Only a force greater than evil, like Kipp, can stop a man driven by malicious evil from attacking Woody and his mother.”
“The characters in ‘Devoted’ are close to my heart, and it would be a career capper to see them brought to the screen,” said Koontz.
In 2016, Mr. Robot‘s Gloria Reuben teamed with Cathy Konrad’s Tree Line Film and Ashok Amritraj’s Hyde Park Television to adapt Koontz’s “Dark Rivers of the Heart” for television. Other books to have been adapted include “Mr. Murder” for ABC in 1998 and “The Face of Fear” for CBS in 1990.
