Over 20 years after the release of the Wes Craven-produced franchise starter Wishmaster, we’ve learned this morning that a brand new novelization is now on the way!
The press release explains, “Written by the creator of Hellraiser 2, 3 & 4, Peter Atkins, and directed by one third of the legendary KNB Effects Group, Robert Kurtzman – Wishmaster was an instant genre hit upon release, and went on to spawn three sequels, action figures and even a staged musical.
“The movie introduced horror fans to a new and enduring villain – the Djinn. A demonic genie who would offer wishes but would only grant nightmares.
“Wishmaster showcased its tale with an abundance of imagination and excitement, establishing itself as a classic worthy of its creator’s lineage – yet unlike many of its contemporaries, it never received a novelization.
“Now 23 years later, Encyclopocalypse Publications step into the fray to right this wrong. Encyclopocalypse has partnered with Peter Atkins to bring an original novelization to life. The book, written by Christian Francis, is based on Atkins’ original screenplay.”
Wishmaster will release on January 31, 2021 in paperback and for Kindle!
An audiobook will also be released next year, we’re told.
