OK, it’s not quite The Avengers…But Archaia Entertainment’s horror comic Feeding Ground will be made into a film. Producer Edward R. Pressman (The Crow, American Psycho) has picked up the rights with Alfonso Gomez-Rejon directing a script wtitten by Carlos Coto (Heroes, Nikita).
Here is the synopsis of the book, from Archaia’s website:
A famine drives Diego Busqueda, a noble “Coyote,” to lead his family across the unforgiving “Devil’s Highway,” a desert cursed with blistering days and deadly nights. However, an ancient evil that has plagued the region for generations has emerged from the shadows. Pitting real-world border politics against a boldly reimagined werewolf mythology, FEEDING GROUND questions the very nature of survival.
And here is the book’s trailer:
“Feeding Ground is an intense and terrifying thriller with a subtle but pointed commentary on immigration in modern America,” Pressman said about the book. “The graphic novel is so cinematic in nature — as soon as I read it, I knew we could make a film that would resonate with a wide audience.”
