Last year, Sony picked up the film rights to Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire’s Image Comics series A.D.: After Death. Now, Deadline reports that Christopher MacBride, who wrote and directed the 2012 found-footage psychological thriller The Conspiracy, will adapt the three-issue miniseries for the big screen.
MacBride is already working to bring two other comics-based films to theatres: Dwayne Harris’s Amnesia, which is also for Sony, and Timothy Truman’s Scout for Studio 8. MacBride is also set to write and direct a film called Echo for Fox.
A.D.: After Death follows a man who exists in a world that has found the genetic cure for death. According to the series’ official description, our protagonist “starts to question everything, leading him on a mind-bending journey that will bring him face-to-face with his past and his own mortality.” The series finale hit shelves on May 10, 2017.
Snyder is best known for his work on Batman, American Vampire and Severed. Lemire — who illustrated the A.D.: After Death — is known for his independent work on Sweet Tooth and Essex County as well as more mainstream books such as All-New Hawkeye and Extraordinary X-Men. Sony currently owns the rights to Lemire’s comic Descender, which launched in 2015.
Snyder and Lemire will both executive produce, alongside Josh Bratman. Eric Fineman is on board to oversee the project for the studio. The film does not yet have a release date.
