Par Pics to crack 'Skulls' for Friedken

Paramount Pictures has optioned Robert Silverberg's sci-fi novel "The Book of Skulls" for William Friedkin to direct with studio-based Alphaville producing. Jeff Davis will adapt the project, a psychological horror story about four college students who discover an ancient book that provides the secret to eternal life -- a secret that comes with a terrible price. Producers Bruce Bernhard and Sam Gaglani brought the property to Alphaville and will produce with company principals Jim Jacks and Sean Daniel. Alphaville executive Rebecca Nelson is overseeing. "To be writing a psychological horror film for William Friedkin, the man who set the standard in the genre by directing what is considered the scariest and most viscerally disturbing movie of all time, is more than a writer could hope for," said Davis, referring to the filmmaker's classic "The Exorcist." Friedkin, repped by WMA, most recently directed "The Hunted." Davis is repped by Victoria Wisdom at Becsey Wisdom Kalajian, manager Zach Tann at Zide/Perry Entertainment and attorney Christopher Tricarico of KMZ Rosenman. He wrote "Retribution" for filmmaker Kevin Williamson and Dimension Films. Bernhard is repped by Cine/Lit and attorney Leanna Gutman. Gaglani is repped by UTA and attorney Tal Vigderson.
