With an adaptation of the horror comic sensation Preacher still stewing, another property from the same writer is getting ready to be shopped around. One of our favorites, too — the amazingly violent Crossed from Avatar Press.
According to Variety Ken F. Levin has enlisted Michael De Luca, Jason Netter, and Kevin Spacey’s Trigger Street Prods. to help independently finance and produce an adaptation of Garth Ennis’ apocalyptic horror comic book series Crossed before shopping it to distributors. Crossed is published by Avatar Press and drawn by Jacen Burrows. Ennis has penned a version of the script that is being shown to directors.
Crossed centers upon the carriers of a virus who are known as the “Crossed” since a cross-like rash appears on their faces. This contagion is primarily spread through bite wounds and rape, assuming that the victim doesn’t die first, but can be spread by any bodily fluid, which the Crossed have used to great effect by treating their weapons with their fluids. It does not appear to affect animals in any way.
Look for more soon.
