Seems to be a popular trend nowadays for comedians to executive produce less funny, or at least less friendly, projects. Jordan Peele has become known for handling horror projects with a comedic twist, but a heavy subtext. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have been producing shows like Preacher and The Boys that take a satirical twist at the ideas of religion and superheroes...and not in a flattering way! Now, of all people, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is set to executive produce alongside Brannon Braga an original film based on author Clive Barker’s six-book horror anthology Books of Blood. Yes, Clive Barker...the guy who introduced us to this weirdo:
However, Pinhead will not being making an appearance in this film, set up over at Hulu. Rather, the film will take audiences on a journey into uncharted and forbidden territory through three tales tangled in space and time. Braga not only is executive producing, but also directed the film and co-wrote the script alongside Adam Simon. Today, the official poster for the film has been released by MacFarlane which you can check out below and that links to the Twitter post MacFarlane made:
Books of Blood will star Anna Friel, Rafi Gavron, Britt Robertson, and Yul Vazquez. It will be released on Hulu on October 7th.
