According to Simmon's website, there might be a movie in the works that will based upon his two award winning horror novels
Summer of Night and A Winter Haunting.

This comes from the website:
A WINTER HAUNTING is currently in the process of being optioned for film – details soon to follow in updates on this News page – and Dan has been hired to write the treatment and screenplay in the summer of 2004. He plans to spend time consulting with his friend Robert Sigl, German film director who had been slated to direct Children of the Night before that movie ran into a snag a few weeks before principal photography was to begin in the summer of 2000. After their consultation, Sigl will be talking to the producers of A Winter Haunting about his vision of the motion picture.

The option for A WINTER HAUNTING also includes a holdback on Dan’s earlier “Elm Haven” novel, SUMMER OF NIGHT, and he plans for his screenplay to be an amalgam of the two books with totally new elements.

“I have a simple plan for A Winter Haunting, the movie,” says Dan. “I want it to be the most original and frightening psychological horror film ever made.”

I think the "land lampreys" might be enough to scare the crap out of me, in and of themselves.

It would be cool if this project can get off the ground.

With movie deals also in the works for the Hyperion Cantos, the Ilium/Olympos books, and Song of Kali, maybe some well done movies will bring the work of Simmons to a wider audience. ******************************************************
