Bloody Disgusting reports that the film adaptation of the Devil’s Due comic Hack/Slash is getting a new writer.
According to their announcement, Stephen Susco, writer of the Grudge, has been signed on to write the adaptation.
This is a new development, apparently marking the departure of Justin Marks, whose biggest (and only) feature film thus far was the disappointing Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li.
Susco’s signing also marks a brand new creative team, as Fredrik Bond joined the production as a director back in July. What about casting? Currently there’s no word on any of it, although Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist (boy, that says something about my viewing habits when I confuse that movie with Zombieland) actresss Kat Denning expressed her interest in the property to MTV.
