William Morris Endeavor Inks Agreement with Permuted Press for Film Rights to Novel Exit Zero
William Morris Endeavor has entered into an agreement with Permuted Press to represent the film rights of the novel Exit Zero. Released in March 2015, Exit Zero blends the genres of horror, comedy and political conspiracy as it follows a group of characters fighting their way down New Jersey’s Garden State Parkway during the initial outbreak of the zombie apocalypse. The debut work by Washington DC based author Neil A. Cohen has received critical praise from horror review websites and fans alike for its unique take on the subject as well as the book’s humor and plot twists.
Attached to the future film is Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi of MTV’s Jersey Shore and ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.
