HOLLYWOOD, CA — The first two books in Keith Rommel’s Thanatology series (Sunbury Press), The Cursed Man and The Lurking Man, have been adapted into feature films and have recently begun their festival runs. Rommel along with director/producer James L. Perry wrote the screenplay for The Cursed Man, and with executive producer Maritza Brikisak for The Lurking Man. Each film took top awards for their screenplay. Now the powerful stories and acting are turning heads. To date, the two films and the novels combined have garnished 60+ awards, the start of what could be truly spectacular. The film festivals continue throughout most of the year, bringing with them many opportunities. Having won ‘Best Book of the Year’, ‘Best Feature Screenplay’, ‘Best Ensemble’, ‘Best Narrative Feature Film(s)’ and wins in many other categories, the films are a direct reflection of the full length novels and are gaining much attention.
Rommel with Frank Krueger, Maritza Brikisak and Felix Martiz is getting ready to bring the third book in the series, The Sinful Man to the big screen. It is yet another powerhouse filled with emotion, psychological terror and reflections on your everyday decisions. Reviewers have called Rommel’s writing, “Horror for the curious mind” and “Thinking man’s fiction.” This is going to be the most ambitious rendition to date.
Beyond the big screen, Sunbury Press and Rommel are getting ready to release the fourth installment in the series. The Silent Woman is scheduled for a March 7th, 2017 release and is available for pre order now.
