Known to horror fans for creating the graphic novel-turned-horror franchise 30 Days of Night, Steve Niles has also created a slew of other comic properties, one of which is the three-issue miniseries Breath of Bones. A while back Comic Book Resources nailed down a concept trailer for what a big screen adaptation would look like, and we figured it’d be cool to share now!
The story of a Jewish golem, the tale is soon making the jump to the big screen, and a director has just been announced. Read on!
Andrew Adamson (Shrek, The Chronicles of Narnia) is attached to helm the adaptation of the acclaimed Dark Horse Comics miniseries, written by Niles and Matt Santoro. Artist Dave Wachter received a 2012 Russ Manning Award nomination for his gorgeous work.
Breath of Bones is set during World War II and tells of a British plane that crashes into a Jewish village. The crash brings Nazi attention, forcing the villagers to defend themselves, with one rabbi and his grandson building a golem creature and bringing him to monstrous life.
Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg of Dark Horse are producing the adaptation with Adamson and his producing partner at Strange Weather Aron Warner. Jeff Fierson from Strange Weather will executive produce.
