David S. Goyer has teamed up with Universal TV to develop Christopher Golden’s novel Snowblind as a potential miniseries, according to Deadline.
Snowblind is set in a small New England town, where 12 years ago, 12 people wandered into a catastrophic snowstorm and vanished, leaving their loved ones and neighbors to pick up the pieces. As a new storm approaches, even bigger than the one from a dozen years ago, it shapes up to be even bigger and deadlier than its predecessor and stirs up all the old emotions and mysteries still lingering behind in the town…
Certainly sounds like a recipe to mix beautiful cinematography with some good character development, if they can get it right. The book is compared to early Stephen King and has the endorsement of King himself as well:
Snowblind is instantly involving and deeply scary. It will bring a blizzard to your bones (and your heart) even in the middle of July. Throw away all those old ‘it was a dark and stormy night’ novels; this one is the real deal. And watch out for that last page. It’s a killer.
