Dark Castle, the horror division for Warner Bros., has picked up Devil’s Due’s alien thriller The Nye Incidents, Variety reports.
The series, which is apparently based on true events, centers on medical examiner Lynn Devlin, who discovers the brutal murder of an alleged alien abductee. Devil’s Due has a preview here.
This victory may be double-edged for the publisher, however — Todd Lincoln (the visual effects director of From Dusk Till Dawn) was announced to be the director for this film, this may impact another long-in-development project of his: Hack/Slash, which was supposed to come out later this year from the in-transition Rogue Pictures.
Yet if the timing works out, this could be a much-needed boon for Devil’s Due, which just last year struggled with “corporate re-structuring” as well as several high-profile layoffs.
