'Bigfoot War' book series to become a film

The Eric S. Brown book series Bigfoot War, is about to be made into a film thanks to Origin Releasing acquiring the motion picture rights. The bestselling books are based on the legendary cryptid who resides around “Boggy Creek” and apparently, he has a nasty streak.

According to Tony Perez, EVP Sales for Origin Releasing, “It seems that interest in Cryptozoology and creatures such as the 'Bigfoot' is timeless and evergreen. It never dies.”

The book series has received some critical acclaim including from Sean T. Page, author of Ministry of Zombies: “Eric S. Brown did for Big Foot what 28 Days Later did for zombies.”

The official book synopsis gives a good indication that it will make a damn cool movie:
Jeff Taylor was an ordinary boy growing up in the small town of Babble Creek, North Carolina, until one night his life was changed forever when a Sasquatch brutally murdered his family. Taylor fled the town, hoping to leave the painful memory behind. Years later, after two tours of duty in the Iraq War, he's back in Babble Creek seeking vengeance. Taylor's lust for the blood of the monster that slew his family sets in motion a series of events that soon has the entire town fighting for its life as a tribe of Sasquatches descend from the forests and hills into Babble Creek to declare war upon its citizens. Babble Creek is about to find out Bigfoot is very real and there's more than one of the creatures that want to fill the streets with blood...
Filming on the Edgen Films and D Zone-produced movie is slated to begin in late July and the title will be modified slightly to Bigfoot Wars. It’s scheduled for release in 2014.
