The partners have optioned rights to develop a new take on Charles Band’s cult horror franchise.

Di Bonaventura Pictures and Caliber Media aim to produce multiple storylines within the Puppet Master universe and have set S. Craig Zahler (Bone Tomahawk) to write the first script.

The project is called Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich and is designed to expand the mythology.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian will proeuce for di Bonaventura Pictures alongside Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller for Caliber Media and are out to directors. Band will serve as executive producer. 

Sonnier and Band announced the project together at the weekend on stage at the Texas Frightmare Weekend presented by Fangoria.
