David S. Goyer likes to keep busy. In addition to working on Da Vinci’s Demons for Starz, he’s also in the thick of the DC Comics-based films at Warner Bros. But that’s only the beginning.
Deadline reports that he’s also going to produce a limited series for Universal TV based on Christopher Golden’s horror novel Snowblind.
Here’s the novel’s official description:
The small New England town of Coventry had weathered a thousand blizzards…but never one like this. Icy figures danced in the wind and gazed through children’s windows with soul-chilling eyes. People wandered into the whiteout and were never seen again. Families were torn apart, and the town would never be the same.
Now, as a new storm approaches twelve years later, the folks of Coventry are haunted by the memories of that dreadful blizzard and those who were lost in the snow. Photographer Jake Schapiro mourns his little brother, Isaac, even as — tonight — another little boy is missing. Mechanic and part-time thief Doug Manning’s life has been forever scarred by the mysterious death of his wife, Cherie, and now he’s starting over with another woman and more ambitious crimes. Police detective Joe Keenan has never been the same since that night, when he failed to save the life of a young boy…and the boy’s father vanished in the storm only feet away. And all the way on the other side of the country, Miri Ristani receives a phone call…from a man who died twelve years ago.
As old ghosts trickle back, this new storm will prove to be even more terrifying than the last.
A veteran author of sci-fi, fantasy and horror, Golden has written three Hellboy novels and collaborated with Mike Mignola on Baltimore, or The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire and Joe Golem and the Drowning City.
