From developer DarkStone Digital and publisher DreadXP, horror game The Mortuary Assistant only released last month, but a film adaptation is already in the works!
Jeremiah Kipp (Slapface) is writing and directing the film, which will be executive produced by DarkStone’s Brian Clarke and Ted Hentschke. Patrick Ewald will produce, with Abbey Smith co-producing.
The Mortuary Assistant follows Rebecca Owens, a recent graduate of the mortuary sciences who takes on an apprenticeship at River Firleds Mortuary where a sinister presence resides. Alone with the dead, Rebecca must embalm corpses, banish demons, and save her soul.
The film adaptation of The Mortuary Assistant is currently in pre-production.
