Written by John Lees and illustrated by Dalibor Talajić, the graphic novel is “set in the mysterious and frightening backdrop of the Pierrot Courts Hotel, a mysterious roadside hotel where lost souls make their last stand with the demons that haunt them,” details the source. “You won’t find it on a map, but if you happen to be driving down Route 66 late at night and you’re truly desperate for shelter, sanctuary, or secrecy, you might see a battered sign on the side of the road: The Pierrot Courts Hotel – where many will check in, but few will check out.”
The comic and the film adaptation come from media outfit AWA Studios.
“I’m very excited to be working with AWA to adapt John Lees’ terrifying graphic novel ‘Hotell,’” said Callahan, who is penning the script with Anthony Ruff. “I aim to tell stories that push the horror genre in new directions — and my plan for this piece involves a very unique approach to the storytelling. This horror will feel all too relatable, and no doubt keep you up at night.”
Callahan made her feature directorial debut with 2018’s “Head Count,” a supernatural horror story about college students who accidentally summon a nefarious entity. She followed it up with 2021’s “Witch Hunt,” which is set in a world where witches are real and witchcraft is illegal.
