Summit Entertainment has set Burr Steers (Charlie St. Cloud) to write and direct an adaptation of horror-thriller novel, Breed. Written by Scott Spencer (Endless Love) under the pseudonym of Chase Novak, Breed centers on a young couple who participate in an experimental fertility treatment, but must seek out a cure when they are transformed into bloodthirsty savages. Steers previously wrote screenplays for Igby Goes Down and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.
