Film option deal for Adam Nevill’s Apartment 16
I am delighted to announce that Adam Nevill’s Apartment 16 has been optioned by Matt and Ray Marshall of Blind Monkey Pictures, the horror offshoot of UK production company Festival Film and TV.
Apartment 16 was the Fantasy Book Review Book of the Month for March 2010 and this is what Floresiensis had to say about it, "You just can’t beat a damn good horror book, particularly one that manages to scare and disturb you late at night, even though you are safe and sound in your own home. Adam Nevill’s Apartment 16 is one such book. Not since reading Stephen King’s It has a book managed to instil such a feeling of fear and disquiet in me."
The novel is a contemporary horror tale set in an imposing block of Victorian apartments in London. No. 16 has been empty for decades. No-one goes in and no-one comes out – until the young night porter hears a noise coming from inside the apartment and opens the door. From that moment, nothing will ever be the same again…
The deal was brokered by the Gotham Group in Los Angeles, representing the John Jarrold Literary Agency.
Congratulations to Adam and we highly recommend reading one of Britain’s finest horror writers – as well as Apartment 16 there is The Ritual and the recently released Last Days, of which I have a review copy that I plan to read as soon as I possibly can.
