Fangoria Presents & author Preston Fassel's novel "Our Lady of the Inferno" getting a film adaptation!
HUGE news today, as we can now confirm that author Preston Fassel's novel, Our Lady of the Inferno, is getting a film adaptation!...
...Deadline is reporting that the novel, published through Fangoria's "Fangoria Presents" label, will be getting a film adaptation penned by Laura Moss and Brendan J O'Brien!
Our Lady of the Inferno is a disturbing allegory of two women on a fateful collision course wrought with blood-shed and sheer terror. Taking place in the seedy streets of 1983, New York, we find Ginny, the “bottom girl” for a pimp and his prostitution ring. Not at all what you’d expect, she’s a tough, intelligent leader with a poetic soul who treats the girls that work under her like sisters. She makes it her duty to protect them, no matter what the cost. It’s that very leadership that attracts the attention of Nicolette, a ruthless killer who believes herself to be merely a vessel for a much darker, powerful force. Ginny becomes the ultimate prize for Nicolette, the buck that she must mount on her wall, so to speak. Ginny just doesn’t know it yet.
Author Preston Fassel will serve as an executive producer, along with Phil Noble Jr. Dallas Sonier and Amanda Presmyk will produce.
I've suspected for awhile now that Our Lady of the Inferno would receive the adaptation treatment, as Preston is an extremely talented writer, and the novel is perfect for a grimy, cinematic horror tale that is sure to shock audiences everywhere. You can check out my review of the novel here, as well as an interview I did with Preston not too long ago.
And of course, while we wait for more developments on the film, I would highly recommend picking up the novel, which is out now.
