In the last few years director Burr Steers has been in relatively warm and fuzzy territory with the likes of 17 Again and Charlie St. Cloud, but now he’s going in a slightly different direction with Breed, a movie based on a horror novel by Chase Novak (who’s also known as Scott Spencer).
Summit Entertainment has picked up the rights to the book, for Steers to write and direct, according to THR. The plot follows the a couple who take part in an experimental fertility treatment that turns them into bloodthirsty savages, leading them on a desperate quest to find a cure.
Spencer has penned 11 novels, although he’s best known for Endless Love, which has sold over two million copies and garnered a nomination for the National Book Award.
It isn’t known as this stage if Steers will try to bring Zac Efron on-board, although considering he’s Zac’s starred in the director’s last two movies it’s a distinct possibility.
