Pabst to Adapt Heart-Shaped Box
According to THR, Warner Bros. has brought on Tom Pabst to adapt Joe Hill's upcoming novel Heart-Shaped Box.
Akiva Goldsman is already in position to produce under his Weed Road banner.
The novel is a supernatural thriller about a rock star who collects occult artifacts and bids online for a ghost that leads him into the Deep South. There, he must confront his past in order to escape the haunting. Hill is the son of horror guru Stephen King and wrote an award-winning collection of short stories titled "20th Century Ghosts."
Pabst recently did writing duties on Indianapolis for Weed Road. He also rewrote Fracture, which is in production at New Line with Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling starring. He also is writing Turbulence at Universal.
