Deadline has revealed that the indie comic "Godkiller" will receive a trilogy of animated feature films. The post-apocalyptic comic, which recently made it's debut at Black Mask Studios, will see its big screen adaptation self-financed and produced by the publisher.
"Godkiller," which was created by Matt Pizzolo, Anna Muckracker Wieszczyk and Ben Templesmith, first debuted back in 2008. It tells the story of a teenage girl who escapes her life of slavery and adventures through a post-apocalyptic landscape. This isn't the property's first foray into feature film territory; Pizzolo previously released an experimental film called "Godkiller: Walk Among Us," which starred Lance Henriksen among others, on digital formats and home video.
Pizzolo is attached to both write and direct the upcoming feature films, which will utilize greenscreen, rotoscope and CG technologies. A remastered version of "Walk Among Us" is expected to kick off the trilogy in 2015. "Godkiller: Tomorrow's Ashes" will follow in 2016 and "Godkiller: The Trouble You Took From Her Eyes" will complete the series in 2017.
Black Mask -- which was formed by Pizzolo, Niles and Brett Gurewitz -- is also currently co-producing the adaptation of Image Comics' "Five Ghosts" for Syfy.
