"Tortured Souls" toys turn movie proposal


According to Variety, Clive Barker and Todd McFarlane’s "Tortured Souls" action figures are about to garner their own movie. Universal Pictures has hired comic books-to-film specialist Hans Rodionoff to write the film. The six grisly Tortured Soul characters were each sold with a chapter of an original Barker-penned storyline. When combined, the "Tortured Souls" chapters form a novella outlining the Souls’ origins. Barker penned a treatment based on that novella, but the ultimate plot remains unclear.
