‘Horrorscope’: Nicholas Adams’ novel to be made into film
Author Nicholas Adams’ 1991 novel ‘Horrorscope’ is set to be adapted into a film that would star Jacob Batalon, of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ fame, alongside Alana Boden, Avantika and Adain Bradley. The film also stars Wolfgang Novogratz and Humberly González.
According to the Collider, “Horrorscope” will tell the story of a reading gone wrong. Hoping to learn a little more about themselves and what the future holds, a ragtag group of college buddies set out to have their horoscopes read by professionals.
However, things spiral out of control and turn deadly as the group members begin to die in a way quite eerily tied to their cosmic horoscope readings.
The feature then sees these living buddies racing against time as they try to figure out if their fates can be changed or if the future as it was for their friends is pretty much set in stone.
The book showed the main protagonists being hunted by a serial killer, but it’s unclear whether the film’s plot will follow the same path. The screenplay for the film was written by Spenser Cohen and Anna Halberg and they are also making their directorial debut with this feature film.
On the work side, Jacob Batalon became world famous for playing the role of Ned, Peter Parker’s best friend in the MCU Spider-Man movies. Avantika recently starred alongside Rebel Wilson in “Senior Year,” which became the No. 1 movie worldwide on Netflix for a few weeks after its release in May.
