Aleister Green loves playing late night TV horror host Aleister Arcane in his hometown of Jackson, OK… at least, until Jackson’s establishment forces him off the air and into unhappy retirement, and an early grave. But Aleister has left a little gift behind – will Jackson ever be the same?

Aleister Green was a TV weatherman who would dress up every Halloween as his mad scientist alter-ego Aleister Arcane and host the local horror film festival. When he and his wife semi-retired to Jackson, Oklahoma, he became the host of a midnight Saturday Night Creature Feature; joining the ranks of Elvira and Sinister Seymour as a B-movie host.

But Aleister tended to get a little gory with some of his skits, prompting sponsors to ask that he tone it down. He didn’t, and a few weeks later, a little boy chopped off his brother’s hand and Aleister was accused of influencing the youth. While on trial, his wife died, and so did the last bit of confidence he had in himself or his fellow man, even after the jury found him not guilty of any involvement in the crime. All Aleister could do was wait to die.

Thirteen years later, he is befriended by a gang of trick-or-treaters, but then, Aleister’s death soon triggers a chain of events that threaten to destroy every person who had tormented him all those years ago; and Jackson, Oklahoma will never be the same again.

It’s taken more than a decade, but IDW Publishing’s “Aleister Arcane” is finally headed to the big screen. Jim Carrey has signed on to star in the comic book adaptation, with Eli Roth joining as director.

The adaptation has been in the works since as early as 2004, the same year the comic was published, when Paramount Pictures acquired the rights, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film is now being produced for Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and Mandeville Films.

“Aleister Arcane” follows the mysterious happenings in an Oklahoma town after the death of local TV host Arcane. A group of kids then find they are the only ones who are able to break the curse that he left on their community. It’s based on the comic book written by Steve Niles and illustrated by Breehn Burns.

Carrey, who was last seen in “Dumb and Dumber To,” will executive produce and star in the project. Although the actor is best known for his comedic roles, he has done horror before, with appearances in “The Number 23” and the upcoming cannibal film “The Bad Batch.” He’s also no stranger to comic book movies, having starred as Colonel Stars and Stripes in “Kick-Ass 2” and The Riddler in “Batman Forever.”

Roth came to prominence with 2002’s “Cabin Fever” and helped continue the torture porn horror movie trend with his “Hostel” films. He last directed “Knock Knock” and was recently announced as the director of Roth is also set to direct the “Death Wish” remake starring Bruce Willis.
