Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman will produce along with Michael Aguilar and be executive produced by IDW Publishing CEO and Publisher Ted Adams and IDW Entertainment President David Ozer.

Aleister Aracane, written by Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) and illustrated by Breehn Burns, was first published in 2004 by IDW Publishing. The story centers on a group of children who befriend a former local TV horror host who was shunned by their parents and forced off the air. After his death, only they have the power to thwart the curse he has laid upon their town.

Eli Roth is repped by WME and attorney Carlos Goodman and Jim Carrey is represented by WME, Jimmy Miller/Mosaic, and attorney Deborah Klein.
