According to Variety, Chris Columbus’ 1492 Entertainment has picked up the film rights to Ben Templesmith’s werewolves-in-a-mental-institute graphic novel “Welcome to Hoxford“. Columbus will produce the adaptation along with 1492 partners Michael Barnathan and Mark Radcliffe.
I’m trying to imagine what a film version of Hoxford’s visual would look like, and I’m failing. Perhaps they could get David Fincher to direct and Darius Khondji to handle the photography– they created a similarly grungy, visceral world in Se7en.
