Author Seth Grahame-Smith has carved out a very profitable niche with his revisionist takes on famous stories, including Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter (the movie version comes out next year) and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (which has hit several director-related roadblocks on its slow shuffle toward the big screen). Next up? Grahame-Smith's Unholy Night, which turns the Biblical story of the Three Wise Men into an action-adventure. Deadline reports that Warner Bros. has snapped up movie rights to the novel in a package worth around $2 million, and can we suggest that the studio make a preemptive strike on other potential Grahame-Smith treatments? Go ahead and reserve the domain names now for, let's see, Malcolm EXorcist, Noah's Arcade, Creeping Beauty, and Robin Hood is a Ghost or Some Other Creature Now.
