Universal Pictures has tapped Carey Malloy to adapt Boom! Studios' horror comicbook TAG for the big screen, according to THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER. Marc Platt will produce alongside Ross Richie and Andrew Cosby of Boom Ent. Inc.
Written by Keith Giffen and drawn by Kody Chamberlain, the comic tells the story of an average Joe who while walking down the street one night is tagged by a stranger, giving him a pagan curse that makes him begin to decompose before his eyes.
Donna Langley, Jeff Kirschenbaum and David Ortiz will shepherd for the studio.
