James Wan to produce ‘Boy Who Drew Monsters’ film

Los Angeles, Oct 2 (IANS) Filmmaker James Wan will produce the film adaptation of “The Boy Who Drew Monsters”, a horror novel by Keith Donohue.

Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing, who penned Emile Hirsch’s indie horror film “The Autopsy of Jane Doe”, are on board to write this adaptation, reports hollywoodreporter.com.

The book, published in 2014, centered on a 10-year-old boy who suffers from Asperger’s as well as agoraphobia. But he also develops the ability to bring to life whatever he draws, which unfortunately happens to be monsters.

The boy’s best friend, his parents and a priest’s housekeeper figure into the story as they all try to help the boy in a book that is described as part drama, part ghost story and part creature feature.

Wan will produce the film along with Michael Clear, who heads production at Wan’s Atomic Monster and brought the book into the label.

He is currently in production on “The Conjuring 2” and is also developing “Aquaman”.
