20th Century Fox has scored the rights to Keith Giffen’s comic book mini-series “Tag” and have attached “Annabelle” helmer John Leonetti to direct.
The story follows an everyday man ‘tagged’ by a random stranger and returns home to make a terrifying discovery – his body is decomposing before his eyes. He must figure out the origin of the curse, or pass the curse on to somebody else before it overtakes his body.
The film is expected to change the lead to a woman, and follow a tone that’s less straight up horror and more psychological thriller with elements of supernatural horror. Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski (“Stephanie”) will pen the script.
