Scott Snyder and Francesco Francavilla’s horror comics series ‘Night of the Ghoul’ gets film deal

Snyder and Francavilla’s ‘Night of the Ghoul’ is set to be adapted into a film.

Scott Snyder and Francesco Francavilla’s comics miniseries Night of the Ghoul is headed to Hollywood. Announced via Deadline, the comics series will be produced by 20th Century Studios after a bidding war between multiple streamers and studios. Night of the Ghoul will be directed by Rob Savage and produced by 21 Laps, known for Stranger Things and the upcoming Deadpool 3, among other titles. Snyder and Francavilla will be exec producers.

Snyder has been talking about Night of the Ghoul for years, like in our 2019 interview, with the series launching on Comixology in October 2021. Coincidentally this news comes just a day before Night of the Ghoul launches in comic shops with its first print run via Dark Horse Comics. Don’t miss our first issue review to see how good it is.

The series blends Snyder’s love of monsters and horror films in general. In our interview, Snyder said, “It’s a horror book that makes a new classic monster, but it’s really about film.”

“It’s about a lost 1930s classic that burned in a fire. And this guy, it’s basically about a guy who finds fragments of a film as he’s digitizing old films in his job at a studio. It’s about this famous film that burned in the ’30s that was supposed to be a masterpiece called Night of the Ghoul and he goes and he finds this screenwriter-director who is still alive in this rest home. He goes there to confront him about what happened to this film. The whole story is an interplay between the horrifying things that unfold in this rest home and the fragments of this film that are actually drawn into the book itself.”

‘Night of the Ghoul’ #2 is a hair-rising must-read issue
