Matt and Ray Marshall of Blind Monkey Pictures, the horror offshoot of UK production company Festival Film and TV, have optioned Adam Nevillâ€™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.Â 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 againâ€¦.
The deal was brokered by the Gotham Group in Los Angeles, representing the John Jarrold Literary Agency.
