The comic, created by Michael Moreci, was released as a five-issue miniseries in 2014; a follow up miniseries is currently being published, with plans for a third and final series to follow. The option, which will adapt the first mini's story, is the second one for Moreci at Heavy Metal, with his co-creation, the Heavy Metal published "Hoax Hunters," already in development with the media company.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jeff Krelitz, David Boxenbaum and Heavy Metal president Brian Witten are co-developing and producing the movie, which is being written by "Leatherface" writer Seth Sherwood.
"It's such a unique book and it needs that particular vision," Moreci told THR. "To have people that really get it, I think it makes a difference."
