One Tree Hill writing team Mike Herro and David Strauss are the scriptwriters for the film adaptation of Eat, Brains, Love by Jeff Hart. Rodman Flender is directing. Deadline reported that "Gunpowder & Sky first announced that they had signed an exclusive deal with DIGA Studios, an independent production studio founded by former MTV President Tony DiSanto, and Full Fathom Five to develop the teen zombie novel in 2016."
"With years of experience writing and producing successful series across multiple networks, both [Herro] and [Strauss] were a natural fit for Eat, Brains, Love," said Van Toffler, CEO of Gunpowder & Sky.
DiSanto added that the writers "did a fantastic job adapting the source material; the script retains the core DNA of what attracted us to the book, while at the same time creating something fresh and new, injecting into it their truly unique voice. I've also had the pleasure of working with [Flender] in the past on episodes of Scream, and had been a fan prior to that. He is a director with a clear vision and passion for the material. We're thrilled to have this combination of great talent behind this film."
