Horror. Vampires. Seductive huntresses. Creator and writer Jason Dube is teaming with director Wolfgang Meyer and producer Stacy Pippi Hammon to bring the eye-catching visuals of his dark and engaging Shadow Hunters comic to life as a feature-length, live-action film.
From the Press Release:
The official Shadow Hunters announcement was made during the recently concluded Miss Misery’s Days of Terror horror convention in Sacramento, California. Director Meyer (Model Hunger, Disciples) is currently penning the script with input from Dube. Hammon (a co-director of the Viscera Film Festival) completes the production team.
Shadow Hunters revolves around the lives of three teenagers seeking vengeance on a dark demon. Though they have supernatural powers, Jessika (a werewolf), Jenna (a vampire), and Renae (a witch) aren’t the monsters in the comic book. In the world of Shadow Hunters, sometimes the things that go bump in the night are the heroes themselves.
Dube expressed his excitement over seeing his comic brought to the big screen: “I am so excited to have Wolfgang developing my Shadow Hunters comic book universe. The first time talking to him I immediately felt his excitement for the project and could tell he had a passion to create a film that stays truthful to the comic book base and at the same time takes it in a more in-depth direction that you can only do with film. I feel my creation is in good hands.”
“I want to make something that is going to make everyone happy,” says Meyer, who understands that the fans are the number one priority when writing the script.
A complete Shadow Hunters film website will launch soon with updated info on the story, characters, and production so keep your eyes here for more details.
