From Deadline:

Stephen Susco To Adapt Robert McCammon’s ‘Speaks The Nightbird’ For Potential FX Series

By Mike Fleming, Jr
June 3, 2019 5:33pm

EXCLUSIVEFX is developing the Robert McCammon horror novel Speaks The Nightbird for a potential series, and Stephen Susco has been set to adapt.

Wolper Organization’s Mark Wolper, Kevin Matusow for The Traveling Picture Show Company, Shay Prentice and Kevin Nicklaus will produce.

The bestseller tells the dark and chilling tale about a witch-hunt in the seventeenth century Carolina colonies. The series centers around the main character Matthew Corbett.

Susco most recently wrote and directed Unfriended: Dark Web for Blumhouse and Universal, a film that premiered at SXSW last year. Susco scripted The Grudge and The Grudge 2, a highly profitable horror series for Sony.

Susco is repped by Verve.

That’s all the information I have about the project at this time. And it’s not a horror novel.

AudioFile Magazine’s Five Questions with Edoardo Ballerini, who brilliantly narrates the Matthew Corbett audiobooks. From the article:

“Robert McCammon’s SPEAKS THE NIGHTBIRD shows American colonial life in all its brutal glory. Edoardo’s perfect portrayals—a fire-and-brimstone preacher, a woman accused of witchcraft, a young magistrate’s clerk—earned him an Earphones Award and a spot on the Audies shortlist. This is a story of secrets and fear and a small community trying to set down roots in a strange new world.”
