Legendary Entertainment has acquired the worldwide rights, and Variety reports are developing a film based on Marguerite Bennett’s comic series Animosity. The story is set in a world plunged into chaos as newly intelligent animals gain the power of speech and fight humanity.

Bennett previously worked at DC Comics, writing series about Batman, Superman, and Batgirl, and for Marvel, with series on Nightcrawler, Wolverine, and X-Men.

AfterShock Comics published Animosity #1 in 2016, followed by three volumes of Animosity: The Rise and Animosity: Evolution in 2017. AfterShock Media president Lee Kramer and CEO Jon Kramer are producing the movie. Legendary’s Jon Silk will oversee the project.

Synopsis:

The story is set in a world plunged into chaos as newly intelligent animals gain the power of speech and fight humanity and one other. In the midst of the turmoil is Jesse, an 11-year-old girl, and her dog, Sandor, who is devoted to her and acts as her protection. A year later, Jesse and Sandor begin a cross-country journey to find Jesse’s half-brother, Adam, who lives in San Francisco.
