Joe Hill’s Snapshot 1988 is heading to the big screen



Universal has won the rights to Snapshot 1988, a novella by Joe Hill (Horns, Locke & Key). Ouija: Origin of Evil director Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard are in talks to write the screenplay.

The story, set in 1988, follows a 13-year old boy who ends up taking care of his elderly former housekeeper whom he thinks is succumbing to dementia. What he doesn’t know is that her memories are not being lost but stolen by an evil man named The Phoenician who uses a camera that steals memories. The story will be published in a four novella collection from William Morrow in the Spring of 2018.

With Stranger Things still riding high another supernatural thriller set in the 80s will be very welcome and this sounds very cool. The fact Stranger Things owed an awful lot to the works of Stephen King it is great that this novella by his son is getting a film adaptation.

Akiva Goldsman’s Weed Road and Jason Blum’s Blumhouse, the banner behind the studio’s recent release Purge: Election Year, are attached to produce. Greg Lessans will executive produce.
