Saw Writers To Adapt The Stuff of Legend


Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the writing duo who are responsible for four out of seven of the “Saw” franchise,” has been hired to write the big screen adaptation of the comic book, “The Stuff of Legend.” The comic book was written by Mike Raicht and Brian Smith and illustrated by Charles Paul Wilson III. It was published by  Th3rd World Studios.

The official plot synopsis for “The Stuff of Legend” is as follows:

The year is 1944. An allied force advances along a war-torn beach in a strange land, outnumbered and far from home. Together, they fight the greatest evil they have ever known. Never ending waves of exotic enemies come crashing down on them, but they will not rest. Thousands of miles away, the world is on the brink of destruction. But here in a child’s bedroom in Brooklyn, our heroes, a small group of toys loyal to their human master, fight an unseen war to save him from every child’s worst nightmare.

Led by the toy soldier known as the Colonel and the boy’s faithful teddy-bear named Max, the toys enter the realm known as The Dark. There they will face off against the Boogeyman and his army– a legion of the boy’s forgotten, bitter toys. Fighting to survive insurmountable odds, the toys will discover this is a battle not only for the soul of a child, but for their own as well.

The film adaptation will be a mixture of live action and CGI. Pete Candeland has been brought in to direct the project.

There is no word yet on when “The Stuff of Legend” will begin production or who is being looked at to star.
