Plan B Productions and New Regency have acquired rights to the comic “Wytches” and are planning a feature adaptation.
Eisner-winning writer Scott Snyder created the story about a father who moves his family to a nearby town, to help his teenager daughter Sailor recover from a traumatic bullying incident in the woods.
As she begins to see familiar shadowy figures, her father realizes that a terrifying mythical presence is haunting her from the woods that surround neighboring towns.
No screenwriter or director is attached. Snyder, Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner will serve as executive producers.
