Yet another graphic novel is being adapted for the big screen, this one teeming with familiar monsters from a time gone by. Hey it could be worse. We could be getting an adaptation of Archie instead! Talk about horror!
According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog Andrew Lazar’s Mad Chance and Circle of Confusion are teaming up to give IDW Publishing graphic novel Lore the big-screen treatment.
“Cory Goodman, the scribe who wrote the Paul Bettany vampire thriller Priest for Screen Gems, and Jeremy Lott will write the screenplay. The producers are hoping to launch an action-adventure franchise in the vein of Men in Black, this one focused on mythological creatures. The story focuses on a young man who reluctantly becomes a member of an elite secret order charged with protecting humanity from the beasts of folklore who invade our world.”
Look for more soon!
