Some quick news is coming out of the New York Comic Con as Deadline reports that the comic book series Wytches has been acquired by New Regency for Brad Pitt’s Plan B to produce. The series is written by bestselling and Eisner Award-winning author Scott Snyder and illustrated by award-winning artist Jock. Snyder and Jock will be executive producers on the feature film adaptation.
Wytches follows Charles Rooks, a loving father who moves his family to a neighboring town in an attempt to help their teenage daughter, Sailor, recover from a disturbing run-in with a bully. She remains haunted by the traumatic incident, unsure of what actually occurred in the woods and unable to escape a darkness growing around her. When Sailor begins to see familiar shadowed figures, Charles must help his daughter survive a terrifyingly real and mythic presence rooted within the woods and the surrounding local towns.
