Fox picks up ‘biblical thriller’ The Unseen

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

Fox has bought biblical thriller script THE UNSEEN, written by John Travis, with Hutch Parker attached to produce, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The script is based on the short story "Mr. Pettinger’s Daemon", which appeared in John Connolly's collection of short fiction stories "Nocturnes". The plot centers on…

…a hospital cleric who is tasked with treating a fellow clergyman in a remote parish who has been displaying severe signs of mental illness. When he arrives, he discovers that the root of his colleague's erratic behavior is a biblical force of evil that is trying to surface from deep below the church.

Travis' credits include THE NEW DAUGHTER, starring Kevin Costner, and THE HAUNTING OF MOLLY HARTLEY, starring Haley Bennett, Jake Weber and Chace Crawford.
