‘Saw’ Movie Writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan Sell First Novel

Patrick Melton Marcus Dunstan

Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan are expanding from bringing horror to the big screen to writing a book. Deadline reports the two Project Greenlight season 3 winners and ‘Saw IV-VII’ scribes have a deal with Little Brown for their first novel.

BLACKLIGHT is intended to be the first in a series following Buck Carlsbad, a private detective/ghost hunter obsessed with finding the spirits of his parents, who were murdered when he was a young boy. Each case he takes brings him closer, and in Blacklight, he is hired to go on the inaugural ride of a Los Angeles to Las Vegas bullet train to determine if it’s haunted.

The feature rights will, of course, also be shopped around. Meanwhile, Melton and Dunstan are also currently at work on films ‘The Collection’ and ‘Piranha 3DD.’

What do you think? Any interest in this?
