SGS has penned the screenplay for upcoming "Dark Shadows," Burton produced the SGS-penned "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and writer is also working on the "Beetlejuice" sequel for the director. And now, there's one more gig being thrown into the mix.

Just as J.J. Abrams is a brand and industry unto himself, if things go according to plan, the same will be true of Seth Grahame-Smith. Wait, who? The name might not be familiar, but you've likely heard of his stuff and more importantly, Hollywood just loves this guy. He's the author of both "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies" with the former headed to theaters next year and the latter coming along in development (although with quite a few bumps along the way). He's penned the screenplay for Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows" and because of that he was hired on to write "Beetlejuice 2." In short, he's a fresh voice in the genre game even though none of the movies based on his material or that he's written have hit theaters yet, the studios are banking on this guy.
