E.L. Katz (“Channel Zero”) is attached to helm the James Wan-produced film adaptation of Nick Cutter’s novel “The Troop” at Atomic Monster, JS Entertainment and Starlight Media.
In the story, a scoutmaster leads a troop of boys into the Canadian wilderness for their annual weekend camping trip. When an unexpected intruder stumbles upon their campsite, they become exposed to an aggressive otherworldly infection.
The intruder is a carrier of a bioengineered nightmare and so begins a harrowing struggle for survival with no escape from the elements, the infected…or one another.
Noah Gardner and Aidan Fitzgerald are penning the script while Michael Clear will also produce.
