Summit have picked up the rights to Chase Novak’s book BREED: A Novel, which will probably just be titled BREED as a film. It was only published back in September by Mulholland Books. It sees a couple undergo an experimental fertility treatment that changes them into bloodthirsty beasts. They are then forced to go on a quest to find a cure. Burr Steers has been hired to write and direct, which will see him going down a new path as he is mostly known for writing comedies HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS (2003) and IGBY GOES DOWN (2002). Steers was also responsible for directing the latter as well as 17 AGAIN (2009) and CHARLIE ST. CLOUD (2010). A sequel novel is already in the works, which could hint at a developing franchise.
