BOOM! Studios’ horror graphic novel The Unsound is receiving a feature film adaptation and Netflix has picked up the rights to make it happen. According to Deadline, the project will see filmmaker David F. Sandberg return to the horror genre to direct and bring this nightmare to life.
Originally created by Cullen Bunn and Jack T. Cole, the story follows a psychiatrist who returns to the insane asylum where her mother once worked and is now a patient, hoping to quell a bloody wave of horror that’s been unleashed. As she descends down the rabbit hole and discovers hard truths about her own past, she comes to understand the hospital is hiding secrets of its own, and perhaps she and her mother have more in common than she realized.
With Sandberg directing and producing via his Mångata banner with Lotta Losten, the film will be written by Skylar James (29 Mole Street), who is also executive producing alongside Adam Yoelin. Also producing is Ross Richie and Stephen Christy of BOOM! Studios.
Further details on this developing project are not yet available, but as usual we’ll be following along and sharing the latest information with you here on Dead Entertainment. Stay tuned!
