After being rejected by Fox and shopped to other networks, the adaptation of the acclaimed IDW Publishing horror series has reportedly come to the attention of MTV.
Mark Romanek, who directed One Hour Photo and Never Let Me Go is no longer a contender to replace Darren Aronofsky on the Fox film. “I was on their list, I received the script months ago,” he says. “It didn’t seem like my kind of thing.”
The studio reportedly has honed in on eight potential candidates to replace Darren Aronofsky on the film, with names ranging from The Bourne Identity‘s Doug Liman to Training Day‘s Antoine Fuqua to Never Let Me Go‘s Mark Romanek.
