Dark Horse Entertainment has announced the next picture to be released from its production pact with Universal Pictures. The Secret is an adaptation of 2007’s critically acclaimed graphic novel and comic series. Scott Milam, who wrote the upcoming remake of the horror classic “Mother’s Day”, has been signed to write this new adaptation.
Scott Milam’s other projects currently in development include Bedlam for RKO/Twisted Pictures, Ab Tak Chhappan for Paramount Vantage with Jinks/Cohen producing, and Karnival at Rogue with Michael Zoumas producing.
The Secret tells of a group of high-school seniors who play a prank, only to see it backfire when one of their friends disappears without a trace.
Mike Richardson, President and Founder of Dark Horse, and writer of the comic book on which the film is based, will produce the film for Dark Horse Entertainment alongside Scott Stuber, for Stuber Productions.
“Scott is a terrific writer and we’re excited to be working with him on this project,” said Richardson. “The story is full of scares and surprises and goes places no one will expect.”
