Katzsmith Productions has acquired the film rights to adapt Doug Dorst’s debut thriller book ALIVE IN NECROPOLIS. Since the book is so character driven the producers from Katzsmith Productions “David Katzenberg” and “Grahame-Smith” are planning on blending the creepy surroundings with the plot arrangement of a cop procedural to give it a Seven or The Sixth Sense vibe.
The story follows Mile Mercer, a police officer Colma Badge 13 who finds out a young man tied-up in a grave yard. Mercer happens to hear the man though his colleague fails to spot his cries completely. The tale then twists around Mercer's fellow officers, Mercer's friends, his fiancee and the man he saved. Mercer is a lost soul who hasn't quite established his way in life. He's nearly 30 years old and still fights with a purpose and where he fits in.
