Don’t ask for room service here.

Hotell–a horror graphic novel series from AWA Studios–is being adapted to a feature film, and this week a director signed on to the project, according to a report on Deadline.

Elle Callahan (Witch Hunt) will helm the movie, which she will also co-write with Anthony Ruff. AWA Studios president Zach Studin is on board as producer.

The graphic novel–from writer John Lees and artist Dalibor Talajic–is set at the Pierrot Courts Hotel, a “mysterious roadside hotel where lost souls make their last stand with the demons that haunt them,” according to the synopsis.

The hotel can’t be found on any map, “but if you drive down Route 66 late at night–and you’re desperate for shelter, sanctuary or secrecy–you might see a battered sign on the side of the road: the Pierrot Courts Hotel. Where many will check in, but few will check out.”

Lees said the setting of the Pierrot Courts “works as a canvas within which you can tell all kinds of horror stories–from the harrowing to the blackly comic–and introduce all manner of different characters. I’m excited to see how Elle Callahan will bring this haunted hotel to the world of film.”
