 Aleister Green loves playing late night TV horror host Aleister Arcane in his hometown of Jackson, OK…at least, until Jackson’s establishment forces him off the air and into unhappy retirement, and an early grave. But Aleister has left a little gift behind — will Jackson ever be the same

According to The Hollywood Reporter, an adaptation has been in the works since as early as 2004 when Paramount Pictures acquired the rights. The new project is being produced for Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and Mandeville Films. The screenplay will be written by Jon Croker, who wrote The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death. David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman will produce and Michael Aguilar will executive produce.
