20th Century Fox has picked up John Travis' Biblical thriller script "The Unseen".
Based on the short story "Mr. Pettinger's Daemon" from John Connolly's "Nocturnes" collection, Hutch Parker is attached to produce the project.
The story centers on a hospital cleric tasked with treating a fellow clergyman in a remote parish. Said clergyman has been displaying severe signs of mental illness.
When he arrives, he discovers that the root of his colleague's erratic behavior is a biblical force of evil that is trying to surface from deep below the church.
