‘Annabelle’ Director To Helm Film Adaptation Of Graphic Novel ‘Tag’ | Film News

 

After making his directorial debut with The Conjuring spin-off Annabelle, John R. Leonetti is adapting the 2006 comic book miniseries Tag for the big screen. The comic book is about a man who unsuspectingly gets “tagged” (like the playground game that has killed time for generations of bored children) by a stranger, only to find himself subsequently starting to rot away. He is left with the dilemma of whether to keep rotting, or to tag somebody else so he returns to normal – it is, essentially, a far more innocent version of It Follows.

 

The screenplay is being written by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski, who already have another horror screenplay in production: Stephanie, a horror movie from director Akiva Goldsman, best known as the Oscar Award winning screenwriter of A Beautiful Mind, and more infamously, the screenwriter of Batman & Robin. Tag has no release date yet, but 20th Century Fox appear to be putting this on the fast-track to production.

Hey, I'm Alistair! I've recently graduated from university with a pretty good journalism degree- but more importantly, I've been writing about movies for close to two years, both on my own blog (cinemole.wordpress.com) and over at Film Inquiry too! I'm currently working at a cinema until I fulfil my dream of being paid to write - which means unlimited free movies for me!
