Esmail Adapts The “Ghouly Boys”

Sam Esmail is set to adapt the 2004 children’s graphic-novel series “The Ghouly Boys” for Mandate Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

The original comic dealt with a quartet of young monster outcasts and their efforts to fit in. Esmail’s script will follow two friends — a young boy looking to contact his dead father and a young zombie seeking a way to come back to life — who set off on an adventure.

Lindsay Doran is producing.
