Andrew van den Houten of Modernciné announced today that his company has tapped FINAL DESTINATION creator Jeffrey Reddick to adapt THE UNDERTAKERS, the first in a series of young-adult books by Ty Drago that is said to be a cross between SPY KIDS and THE WALKING DEAD. This definitely sounds like a wicked project that could potentially blow up into a fun little franchise for Reddick. For those of you unfamiliar with the story, check out the plot below!
The story centers on Will Ritter, a high school student who begins to see that some of the people around him are “Deaders,” inter-dimensional entities that take over the bodies of the dead and use them as hosts. When Will is recruited by a group of kids who are also gifted with “The Sight,” he discovers that he holds the secret to stopping this new type of terrifying invasion.
Jeffrey Reddick, whose FINAL DESTINATION franchise has made over a half a billion dollars worldwide said, “I’ve been trying to find a project to do with Andrew for years and when I read Ty’s book I knew this was the one. It’s a unique concept with compelling characters and a fun mixture of adventure, cool sci-fi and intense horror.”
