'Back to the Future' Writer Set to Adapt Graphic Novel 'Trespassers'

March 6, 2012

Bob Gale / Trespassers

After scripting the first two Back to the Future films, writer Bob Gale hasn't really done much else with which viewers can be pleased. Such work includes writing the story for the "Tales from the Crypt" film Bordello of Blood and we all know how that turned out. However, Gale could be poised for a big screen comeback as Variety reports the writer will adapt Trespassers, a supernatural graphic novel that follows a group of mythbusters, set on debunking the legend of a famous allegedly haunted house. But their job changes when they encounter real demonic guardians and one of the busters may not be who they claim.

Ryan E. Heppe, the producer behind the forthcoming remake of Short Circuit, is behind the film, but it doesn't sound like there's a studio attached yet. Heppe says, "A good horror flick needs one thing: a simple, original premise that's terrifying as hell. Add to that obvious franchise potential, and the opportunity to combine found footage-style scares with traditional filmmaking frights and you've got something really unique." I'm not sure the elements mentioned make the film unique, but it at least sounds like something potentially interesting on the big screen. Thoughts?
