Errol Morris to helm adaptation of “The Demon In The Freezer”
UPDATE: The Washington Post reveals that Paul Rudd will star in Morris' film, WE FROZE THE FIRST MAN.
Director Errol Morris is an interesting filmmaker. With a penchant for really inventive and off-beat documentaries, there has always been an aspect of his filmmaking style that’s seemed to have been really well-adjusted for the world of fiction filmmaking. That said, he’s not really been able to make much of a splash in that world. THE DARK WIND being his only fictional film, Morris is looking to dive head first into the world of narrative features however, with one hell of a project.
The Playlist spoke to the director, who revealed that he is currently working on an adaptation of the Richard Preston book, The Demon In The Freezer. The book looks at “the US government’s relationship with the biological weapons anthrax and small pox” ad finds comparisons to entities like TRAFFIC. He’s also still very much hard at work on the films WE FROZE THE FIRST MAN and THE END OF EVERYTHING, both of which are in some stage of production.
