Chris Columbus is to produce a new film based on the classic horror comic Creepy Magazine.

The film will be an anthology in the vein of the magazine, featuring four self-contained horror stories from four different directors.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Columbus will write and direct one of the segments, with the other contributors yet to be announced.

Creepy Magazine ran from 1964 to 1983. It featured the work of some of the most prominent writers and artists of the day, including Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko.

Columbus told a Comic-Con audience of his childhood love of the magazine and its sister publication Eerie, saying: "I am thrilled to be immersed once again in the world of Creepy and Eerie.

"They featured some of the most important comic book artists of the time and were incredibly influential in my desire to become a filmmaker.

"It is really exciting to have the opportunity to bring these unique tales to the screen and share them with today's audiences."
