The Secret Heads To The Screen
Teen-horror graphic-novel adaptation

13 May 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

Graphic novel The Secret is being adapted for the big screen by Universal and producer Scott Stuber. But this is no superhero movie: it's a teen-horror-thriller with a set up that's more slasher movie than supermen-in-tights.

The plot sees normal teen Tommy Morris invited to party with the coolest kids at Franklin High School, a group that includes girl-of-his-dreams Pam. But following a prank phone call, and the strange appearance of a faceless man, Pam soon disappears and Tommy is the only suspect.

The book was written by Mike Richardson, founder of Dark Horse Comics and a creator of The Mask and comics like Living With The Dead and Cut as well as this one (which Jason Shawn Alexander illustrated). Scott Milam, who's currently got scripts Bedlam and Wichita in development, and was recently hired to write the Mother's Day remake, will adapt the story for the screen.

Is this more than just another horror comic? Let us know what you think...
