Film option deal for Adam Nevill’s novel Apartment 16

Matt and Ray Marshall of Blind Monkey Pictures, the horror offshoot of UK production company Festival Film and TV, have optioned Adam Nevill’s horror novel Apartment 16, which was published in the UK in 2010 by Pan Macmillan.

The novel is a contemporary horror tale set in an imposing block of Victorian apartments in London.  Number 16 has been empty for decades. No-one goes in and no-one comes out – until the young night porter hears a noise coming from inside the apartment and opens the door. From that moment, nothing will ever be the same again….

The deal was brokered by the Gotham Group in Los Angeles, representing the John Jarrold Literary Agency.
