Creator of the flash cartoon and printed comic Xombie, James Farr, tipped us off today that his baby will be getting the live-action treatment. The details were pretty vague, but he did inform us that “big names” are involved!
Haven’t heard of Xombie before? Well, let’s fill you in on the details: Xombie tells the story of a little girl named Zoe, who washes ashore several decades after a zombie plague has wiped out most life on Earth and replaced it with bloodthirsty reanimated versions of the planet’s previous inhabitants. She is saved from a swarm of zombies by Dirge, a “variant”, a zombie who has retained their conscious mind and the ability to think like a human. Dirge takes it upon himself to perform one last good deed before his zombie body withers away and begins a journey to reunite Zoe with the few remaining live humans and save her from a gruesome death at the hands of the undead.
