As we progress from screenplay to book back to screenplay and finally to the silver screen we wanted to share with you how this relationship began and what’s going on now.
Film producer Daryl Freimark and writer David Parkin met at IFP’s Filmweek in NYC in 2008. Parkin’s screenplay for THE DEVIL IS DUE IN DREARY brought them together and a year later they decided to create a comic version of DREARY before making the film. Through two separate Kickstarte
r campaigns they were able to create four individual issues of DREARY and ultimately the Graphic Novel!
Through the process of creating the book Parkin refined the story and is currently finishing the latest draft of the screenplay. Meanwhile, Freimark has produced 4 films in the last 3 years including SOME VELVET MORNING with Stanley Tucci and Alicia Eve and the upcoming FIVE STAR (written and directed by Keith Miller – Welcome to Pine Hill) premiering at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Freimark and Parkin plan to shoot THE DEVIL IS DUE IN DREARY film in early 2015.
Catch the world premiere of FIVE STAR at Tribeca 2014!
