Colby Day is a filmmaker and playwright whose works include Giant Killer Slugs! and In the Blink of an Eye, which was featured on The Black List 2016 and is being produced by Grey Matter. He was hired off that to adapt the science fiction novel Children of Time for Lionsgate, and recently also adapted the novel Spaceman of Bohemia for Free Association. He is currently developing Simultaneous, an hour-long pilot for Hulu about reincarnation & past life regression produced by Eric Heisserer (Bird Box, Arrival), Lawrence Grey (Lights Out) and James Wan (Aquaman, Saw, The Conjuring).

Colby tells stories about space, spiders, magic, monsters, love, loss, and time. Often his stories will break your heart, but they will without fail also offer to help you pick up the pieces and glue them back together again.

He is interested in whatever weird ideas you’d like to throw at him. The stranger, more magical, and far out the better. His specialty is playing in big sandboxes with big ideas and telling grounded human stories based in fundamental emotional truths.
