ModernCine’s Andrew van den Houten and Final Destination creator/screenwriter Jeffrey Reddick are teaming up to adapt The Undertakers, a young adult book series.
Written by Ty Drago, the first novel in the series “The Undertakers: Rise of the Corpses” goes like this:
Forced to flee his home and family, twelve-year-old Will Ritter falls in with the Undertakers – a rag-tag army of teenage resistance fighters who’ve banded together to battle the Corpses.
“Jeffrey Riddick has done more than simply capture the spirit of “The Undertakers.” He’s brought them to life, with all the action and horror and humanity that goes along with that. His screenplay honored me almost as much as it blew me away!” said author Drago.
Van Den Houten previously produced The Girl Next Door and The Woman and Reddick, since Final Destination, scripted Tamara and Day of the Dead.
