EXCLUSIVE: FuseFrame has hired Ben Ketai to adapt the horror novella Hush for the big screen. Ketai, who wrote and directed the 2010 vampire sequel 30 Days of Night: Dark Days, is repped by APA and Circle of Confusion. The adaptation of Hush, originally written by EM Blomqvist, marks the second property FuseFrame has in film development since it was founded. The first one was the Irene Farrimond thriller A Game Of Hide And Seek that John Swetnam adapted. Created by Indie book publisher Author Solutions in late 2011, FuseFrame has a $1 million development fund it uses to finance screenplays adapted from books written by its stable of self-published writers. Marcus Chait, head of Author Solutions’ film and new-media unit, oversees FuseFrame. Chait, along with Danny Sherman of Thruline Entertainment will produce Hush.
