Warner Brothers have bought a pitch for a movie adaptation of the classic poem, Dante’s Inferno, reports Deadline.
The film is still in the very early stages, but no doubt this should delight horror fans as the romantic story see’s Dante descend into Hell, and face his nine sins for the woman he loves. It could, and should, be amazing.
In a preemptive deal, Warner Bros has purchased the original feature pitch Dante’s Inferno from screenwriter Dwain Worrell. Gianni Nunnari’s Hollywood Gang and Akiva Goldsman’s Weed Road will produce it together.
The project has the studio excited by its scale and franchise potential. It’s based on the epic love story that is at the core of Dante’s Inferno. Dante descends through the nine circles of hell to save the woman he loves.
Nik Manikurve and Chantal Nong brought it in for Warner Bros and they will shepherd it with Hollywood Gang’s Shannon Gaulding and Weed Road’s Greg Lessans.
