I Don't Believe In Coincidences!

I had been soliciting Legion of Dwellers starting three years ago to several in the entertainment world. I feel that As Above, So Below is more than closely related to my Legion of Dwellers. My book was completed and solicited  by late 2011 and into early 2012. The film article about As Above, So Below is dated 4/22/13.

My pitch to various talent agents for Legion of Dwellers:

Beneath the glimmering lights of Paris, young congregate in grottos—makeshift, gateway dens to the catacombs, filled with torn couches, melted candles, and various curiosities. It is here Emma and Killian meet Sophie, a cunning, pink-haired pickpocket, and Maurice, a superstitious thespian.

The four trade stories in the grotto, each dare the other to test their limits in the catacombs. Only the bold journey through tunnels filled with ancient, forgotten, open burials of the dead. Tagging and posting your exploits is the goal. Skulls and bones are piled neatly in the catacombs—by the thousands, they stretch forever along the walls of the tunnels, originally dug by guards of the old Roman Empire.

Emma, Killian, Sophie, and Maurice, prepare to make their mark on the world, by tagging the deepest sections ever tread. Yet when darkness becomes deception, one reveals something in the underworld which threatens to destroy them all.

As Above, So Below Synopsis: 

When a team of explorers ventures into the catacombs that lie beneath the streets of Paris, they uncover the dark secret that lies within this city of the dead.

Miles of twisting catacombs lie beneath the streets of Paris, the eternal home to countless souls. When a team of explorers ventures into the uncharted maze of bones, they uncover the dark secret that lies within this city of the dead. A journey into madness and terror, As Above, So Below reaches deep into the human psyche to reveal the personal demons that come back to haunt us all. Written by John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle (Quarantine, Devil) and directed by John Erick Dowdle, the psychological thriller is produced by Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, Drew Dowdle and Patrick Aiello. Alex Hedlund serves as the executive producer.

Very disappointing!
