Production company Studio 8 recently announced that it has secured the film option rights for Timothy Truman’s post-apocalyptic eco-thriller “Scout.”
According to Deadline, writer/director Chris McBride, the man behind the 2012 found-footage psychological thriller “The Conspiracy,” is set to script and direct the proposed feature. Truman is slated to serve as a consultant throughout the development process.
Originally published by Eclipse Comic between 1985 and 1987, the original “Scout” series lasted 24 issues and was both written and drawn by Truman, a creator perhaps best known for his work on “Hawkworld” and various Jonah Hex series for DC Comics/Vertigo.
The story focuses on ex-Army Ranger and Apache Emanuel Santana and his spiritual quest that leads him on an odyssey through a fallen future America that is no longer a world power.

“Scout” is not the first comic series McBride has attempted to take to the silver screen – in 2014 Sony bought his pitch for a movie based on Dwayne Harris’s sci-fi comic “Amnesia,” and while hopes are high that the “Scout” adaptation hits cinema screens soon, the project in the very early stages of development and current lacks even the most tentative of release dates.
