Vincenzo Natali Explores Some “Tunnels”

“Cube” director Vincenzo Natali is set to helm the film adaptation of best-selling children’s novel series “Tunnels” for Relativity Media.

Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams penned the book about a 14-year-old boy whose archaeologist father disappears. He soon finds himself drawn into the world of a secret subterranean civilization dominated by the sinister, vicious Styx. Two further books in the series have already been penned.

Simon Sandquist and Joel Bergvall are adapting the script while Ryan Kavanaugh, Mark Canton, Danny Davids and Neil Canton will produce.

Natali’s most recent film, “Splice”, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last month.
