If you thought Area 51 had problems, man, you obviously haven’t tangoed in Area 52, a new adaptation of the Image Comic. Read on for all of the out-of-this-world details free of glowing fingers and anal probes.

According to Deadline Summit Entertainment has acquired screen rights to Area 52 and will develop a live action adaptation based on the four-issue comic book series published in 2001.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian will produce, and JC Spink will be executive producer through Benderspink. The comic focused on a top secret warehouse in Antarctica called Area 52, a government storage dump for otherworldly discoveries, manned by a ragtag group of misfits who have been exiled to the middle of nowhere to staff it. When an alien killing machine is accidentally hatched in this repository, the group must band together and use the stored mythological weapons and artifacts to save themselves and the world.

They are tying up the underlying rights to the Brian Haberlin comic and will go out to writers shortly.
