Canadian production company Unstable Ground has picked up the rights to Douglas Borton's 1990 horror novel KANE, according to a press release. Justin McConnell (THE COLLAPSED) and Serena Whitney co-write and co-produce, while genre vets Adam Mason (LUSTER) and George Mihalka (MY BLOODY VALENTINE) serve as consulting producers.
I've never heard of the book before today, but here's the intriguing synopsis:
Kane is a force of nature. Walking out of the desert into the dying town of Tuskett, which only 23 people still call home, he has only one purpose: to kill every resident. Relentless, stealthy, and without mercy, Kane won’t stop until every last man, woman and child is nothing but a memory. Soon the surviving townspeople must band together to fight this seemingly-unstoppable evil, or die trying. Brutal, action- packed, and most importantly, character-driven, Kane is a thrilling story of survival at any cost.
A director has not yet been named, but we'll be keeping tabs on this project as it moves forward.
