The Dead Director Will Never Let GoSure, the above headline could be a movie title in and of itself, but who we are talking about is Howard J. Ford (The Dead franchise) and his new film that is tentatively titled Never Let Go. Read on for details.

This one doesn’t sound very Dread-worthy, but only time will tell and Ford has proved to be quite the force so we’ll keep an eye on it if need be.

From the Press Release
The award-winning director Howard J. Ford, better known for the highly successful and groundbreaking The Dead, distributed through Starz/Anchor Bay, and soon to be released The Dead 2: India, is in pre-production for his latest project, working title Never Let Go and a production date set for mid-September 2014.

The thriller film, in a similar vein to that of Taken, the Bourne series meeting Run Lola Run, follows a single American mother on vacation in a beautiful bustling but unfamiliar land, desperately searching for her missing child following an apparent abduction. Trusting no one, she takes the law into her own hands, stopping at nothing to find her daughter’s abductors and deliver her own form of justice. With classic lost-in-translation vibes of Frantic colliding with topical contemporary themes explored in hits such as “Homeland,” as our unlikely heroine weaves her way through the murky backstreets, now wanted for the murder of a local man, her political connections back in the US begin to reveal that there is much more at stake than first meets the eye.

With pre-production under way and location scouting nearly complete, including exotic locations such as Morocco, the search for the film’s star has already begun.

“We need a gem of an actress who can pull off this part,” said Ford. “There is so much talent out there, and in my view not enough strong female leads, and so I want to find the absolute peak of this talent and bring it to the screen in a role that would challenge the very best screen actors.”

Ford’s Never Let Go is very different to what fans have seen from him before and promises to be an “edge of your seat” thriller that grabs audiences and throws them into the plight that is the worst fear of parents everywhere.

Untold Story of WWE: UNDERTAKER Revealed In New Graphic Novel

Published

on

BOOM! Studios and WWE announced an all-new original graphic novel today called WWE: Undertaker. The comic will explore the career of the legendary Superstar, considered one of the greatest performers in WWE history.

For the first time, novelist, journalist, and combat sports expert Chad Dundas (Champion of the World) and artist Rodrigo Lorenzo (WWE) chronicle the unrivaled career of Undertaker, with new revelations and surprises about some of the most pivotal moments in his more than twenty-five year history in sports entertainment.

I was 12 years old in 1990 when Undertaker debuted in WWE, and from the moment I saw him, he was my guy,” said writer Chad Dundas. “I responded immediately, not only to his obvious physical attributes but the character development and storytelling that made him such a unique figure in the WWE landscape.”

I’m so happy that I was chosen to draw this story for so many reasons,” said Rodrigo Lorenzo. “Since I was a kid, Undertaker has been my favorite WWE Superstar and it’s flattering that BOOM! Studios and WWE chose me to bring the legend of the Undertaker to life in their first original graphic novel.”

WWE: Undertaker features cover art by Oliver Barrett.

There’s only one ‘Phenom’ in the history of WWE, so when we were considering whose story to tell in the first WWE original graphic novel, there was only one answer: Undertaker,” said Eric Harburn, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Working closely with our partners at WWE has allowed us to go deeper into the history of Undertaker than you’ve ever gone before, with revelations that span his decades-long career.”

Digital copies can be purchased from comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app. Print copies hit comic shops, bookstores, and the BOOM! Studios webstore October 2018.
