While sadly there’s still no real news concerning the feature film version of Tim Seeley’s Hack/Slash, fans can look forward another adaptation that’s on its way!
From the Press Release
Halo-8 Entertainment has picked up the rights for award-winning filmmaker Matt Pizzolo (GODKILLER) to adapt the Tim Seeley comic book HACK/SLASH in the illustrated-film style Pizzolo designed with Emmy-winning producer Brian Giberson for GODKILLER, which opened theatrically in 11 cities earlier this year and sold through its first DVD pressing at San Diego Comic-Con in July. Pizzolo intends to begin by adapting the HACK/SLASH series “My First Maniac,” currently being published in comic book form by Image Comics. Halo-8 is planning to release the illustrated-film in 2011 as a double-feature with Pizzolo’s previously announced adaptation of Seeley’s LOADED BIBLE comic book.
Seeley said “I’m happy to have my two babies in the same crib, with a unique HACK/SLASH and LOADED BIBLE double feature. Viewers can get their horror and sacrilege in the same lovin’ spoonful.”
Pizzolo said “Tim is not only a master storyteller but he’s also completely nuts, and that combination makes for some fantastic comics. As a longtime fan of the series, it’s a ridiculously exciting opportunity.”
HACK/SLASH tells the ongoing adventures of Cassie Hack (daughter of the evil slasher known as The Lunch Lady), who rejected her mother’s murderous ways and instead devoted her life to hunting down slashers with her partner Vlad. “My First Maniac” is the newest HACK/SLASH mini-series, going back to the beginning Year One-style and detailing Cassie’s very first case.
LOADED BIBLE takes place after nuclear Holy War has decimated North America and left it populated by legions of vampires. When humanity’s last stronghold New Vatican City is withering under the vampires’ assault, the Church gives their people a hero by cloning Jesus Christ Himself… but all is not as it seems for the Test Tube Messiah as he’s drawn into a web of betrayal, bloodshed, and seduction.
Look for more on this one soon!
