Horror Director Tobe Hooper Scores Book Deal

texasposter.jpgHorror film legend Tobe Hooper–who directed “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” and “Poltergeist”–has scored a deal for his first novel. The book sold to Julian Pavia at Crown, and publication is tentatively set for Halloween 2010.

Movable Type Literary Group handled the deal, and GalleyCat caught up with founder Jason Allen Ashlock to find out more. “While Alan Goldsher was collaborating with Robert Englund on a memoir for S&S, he got to know Tobe, and we immediately began considering a book project,” explained Ashlock.

“They’re an energetic team, and the proposal they created got a lot of attention. The most compelling element of the book is Tobe’s use of his own life experiences in the story. He’s a master storyteller who mines his own history for the project … We’ve begun discussions with several producers already, and are getting a lot of calls as word gets around.”
