Tomorrow will mark one year since we dropped the word on you that the John Suits-helmed adaptation of the graphic novel THE SCRIBBLER had begun production, and today we have the news that Imagination Worldwide has solidified the foreign distribution rights to the Katie Cassidy-starring flick with plans to represent the film at the upcoming Marché du Film held in conjunction with the prestigious 2013 Cannes Film Festival from May 15th through May 26th.
Based on the popular British graphic novel written by Dan Schaffer, THE SCRIBBLER features an all-star cast toplined by Cassidy (“Arrow”) and also stars Garret Dillahunt (WINTER’S BONE), Michelle Trachtenberg (“Gossip Girl”), Eliza Dushku (“Dollhouse”), Gina Gershon (KILLER JOE), Michael Imperioli (THE LOVELY BONES), Billy Campbell (“The Killing”), Kunal Nayyar (“The Big Bang Theory”) and Sasha Grey (THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE).
THE SCRIBBLER concerns Suki (Cassidy), a young woman confronting her destructive mental illness using "The Siamese Burn”, an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities. The closer Suki comes to being "cured", she's haunted by a thought... what if the last unwanted identity turns out to be her?
It's an intriguing concept and I'm hoping we'll see a trailer for this one soon. It's got me very curious.
THE SCRIBBLER was adapted for the big screen by its creator, Schaffer. Originally published by Image Comics in 2006, the mind-bending graphic novel of THE SCRIBBLER will be re-released by First Comics in conjunction with the film’s upcoming domestic debut. THE SCRIBBLER was produced by Cowan and Ken F. Levin of NightSky Productions, and executive producers on the stylized thriller include Caliber Media’s Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller as well as Kerry Johnson from NAA.
