It looks like one of Crime HQ's own is heading to the movies, well, his characters are anyway. Weston Ochse's SEAL Team 666, a paranormal military thriller, has been optioned for film. According to Variety, it looks like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is set to star as the lead. For those who may have missed the awesome previous coverage of SEAL Team 666, here's the gist:
Halfway through SEAL training, Cadet Jack Walker, still green but showing incredible promise, is whisked away to join four SEALs and their dog for a special ops mission. Walker soon finds himself in a whirlwind of otherworldly creatures and events as he discovers the true nature of SEAL Team 666. Battling demons, possessed humans, mass-murdering cults, and evil in its darkest and most and ancient form, the members of SEAL Team 666 have their work cut out for them. And it's not long before they realize that the threat isn't directed against the US alone — an ancient and deadly cult has far bigger plans, and Walker is at the center of a supernatural conflict in which the entire world is at stake.
I, for one, welcome more opportunities to see The Rock fight demons; 2005's Doom didn't really scratch the itch I never knew was there. If you're intrigued, you can also check also out an excerpt from the second SEAL Team 666 thriller, Age of Blood, right here on Criminal Element!
