Brannon Braga will co-write, direct and executive produce the film with Seth MacFarlane also Executive producing.
The film will see its premiere in 2020.
Written by Braga and Adam Simon (Salem, The Haunting in Connecticut) based on a short story by Barker with contributing original material, Books of Blood takes a journey into uncharted and forbidden territory through three tales tangled in space and time. The cast already includes Anna Friel, Britt Robertson, Rafi Gavron and Yul Vazquez.
McQueen plays Steve, a dim hit man who’s partnered with Vazquez’s Bennett.
Shen plays Ellie, a retired RN who “radiates warmth and efficiency.” An avid gardener who lives with her husband Sam (Campbell) in a cozy home where all are welcome, she greets Jenna (Robertson) as if she’s her own daughter.
Cambbell’s Sam is a builder and contractor, a sturdy, outgoing man whose good humor and seemingly good heart perfectly balance his wife’s warmth.
