History is filled with harrowing tales of brave people doing amazing things, but sometimes that’s not enough. Sometimes history can use a little spicing up. That’s where Seth Grahame-Smith comes in! The man who’s made his name mixing historical fiction with horror in books like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter not only has a new novel called Unholy Night coming out next year, but has also already optioned the film version to Warner Bros., Heat Vision reports.
The book, which will be released April 10, takes a skewed look at the birth of Christ, positing that the Three Wise Men of lore were actually a trio of thieves who end up helping Mary, Joseph and Jesus to escape to Egypt on a journey in which “they battle magical biblical creatures and encounter figures like Pontius Pilate and John the Baptist.”
Grahame-Smith will tackle the screenplay as he did for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which is being directed by Timur Bekmambetov.
