Barbarash Chosen for Hybrid!
Though it’s been relatively quiet from the Studio 407 team as of late, that doesn’t mean nothing’s been going on. The comic company continues to develop its titles into flms through their partnership with Myriad Pictures, the first of which being the creature feature Hybrid. Today they named Cube: Zero helmer Ernie Barbarash as the director of Hybrid; a very good sign that things are moving along.
Based on the comic written by Peter Kwong, who also penned the screenplay, Hybrid is the story of vacationing college students who come across what appears to be an abandoned trawler while on a sailing trip. But they soon discover it is fact the nest of a mutant creature, born from environmental abuse, who “fishes” for humans in the open water. Sounds like a good time to me!
Shooting on Hybrid is expected to get underway early next year; the trade paperback of the comic, on the other hand, is due to hit shelves February 25th. Learn more about Hybrid over at the comic’s official sub-site, and keep it here for updates on the film as they come down!
