Fox 2000 has bought rights to the upcoming Royce Buckingham novel "Demon Keeper" for a live-action film
Fox 2000 is a "Demon Keeper." Not in real meaning, but the studio has acquired the rights to the upcoming Royce Buckingham young adult novel for a live-action film for which AEIAEI's Ken Atchity and ChiChi-Li Wong have been tapped to direct.
The story focuses on a Seattle teen who inherits a house filled with mischievous demons. The youth has to keep his charges in the house and thwart the Thin Man, a creepy character who wants to free and exploit them for evil purposes.
While no cast has yet on board, AEI's Mike Kuciak is in hand to produce.
