Another comic property is getting the adaptation treatment, and we have the initial details regarding the carnage to come as Image Comics’ Sheltered makes its way to the big screen. Read on, true believer!
According to THR, Jesse Peyronel, the filmmaker behind the indie movie Siren, is teaming up with The Walking Dead producers Circle of Confusion to adapt the Image Comics book Sheltered.
The comic is a pre-apocalyptic thriller set in a survivalist compound somewhere in the Pacific Northwest populated by families who believe an imminent volcanic eruption is about to make the U.S. uninhabitable for years. Yet, the adults are unprepared for a strike from within in the form of a coup d’etat by the kids, led by a charming sociopathic teen.
What follows is a struggle between two sets of young protagonists that is described as having shades of Lord of the Flies and The Hunger Games.
The comic book miniseries was created by Ed Brisson (Comeback, Secret Avengers) and Johnnie Christmas (Continuum: The War Files).
