Amazon Studios – the original content arm of Amazon.com – has optioned the rights to author Ania Ahlborn’s horror novel, Seed.
Amazon Studios has added the project to its development slate and will begin testing various big screen adaptations of the spine-tingling Southern gothic suspense tale of an ordinary man with a demon on his back.
The move to option a novel in circulation is a first for Amazon Studios, which up to this point has optioned only movie scripts and episodic series projects submitted to Amazon Studios.
Amazon Studios recently hosted a trailer contest allowing fans the opportunity to create the official Seed book trailer and awarded $3,000 to the winning trailer “Grinning Demons,” as selected by the author Ania Ahlborn. You’ll find the trailer below.
Ahlborn’s second book, The Neighbors, comes out November 27th.
