Steve Jackson’s House of Hell, one of the Fighting Fantasy series of interactive gamebooks, is heading to the big screen. The project is in pre-production now with UK-based Superteam Productions.
The Fighting Fantasy series has sold more than 20m copies worldwide.
The plot follows a young couple who seek shelter in an abandoned house.
“Steve Jackson and (co-creator) Ian Livingstone turned down other film and TV offers whilst waiting for the right production company to come along.” explained Ian Paterson, MD and founder of Superteam. “They wanted to find someone able to deal with the interactive nature of their books; a company that could do justice to this worldwide phenomenon. I am proud to announce that they chose Superteam Productions, based here at Pinewood Studios, for the task.”
In addition to the film, Superteam plans an interactive Blu-Ray version and an online version of the project. Mobile phone content offerings are being discussed now.
“The online version will be interactive and will allow viewers to choose their own paths like the Blu-Ray version,” Paterson continued.
