As reported by Deadline, my comic book series THE EMPTY MAN (illustrated by Vanessa Del Rey) has been optioned by Twentieth Century Fox for development as a motion picture.
Now’s a great time to read the trade paperback of the series! You can order it from your local comic shop (always a great first shopping choice) or from Amazon.
20th Century Fox has optioned The Empty Man, the Boom! graphic novel written by Eisner Award-winner Cullen Bunn and illustrated by Vanesa R. Del Rey that was published in 2014. The studio has set emerging dircetor David Prior to write and helm the adaptation in the latest to come from Fox’s first-look deal withBoom! Studios.
Although the film’s plot is being kept under wraps, the graphic novel is a supernatural thriller about a terrifying entity that may be responsible for a string of mysterious disappearances in a small midwestern town. Boom! Studios CEO and founder Ross Richie and president of development Stephen Christy will produce the pic, with Adam Yoelin co-producing. Fox’s Mark Roybal and Ryan Jones brought the project into the studio.
Prior has a rep as one of the top directors of Special Edition DVDs and Blu-rays, producing and designing documentaries for the likes of David Fincher, Peter Weir, the Coen brothers, Michael Bay, Tim Burton, David Cronenberg and Guillermo del Toro. Prior gained extra cred with his 2008 horror thriller short AM1200(check out the trailer for it below).
Boom! and Fox are already in development on several projects as part of their deal including an adaptation of James Wan’s graphic novel Malignant Man, Imagine Agents with Michael Keaton attached to star and Anonymous Content producing, Lumberjanes with Will Widger (The Munchkin) attached to write, andThe Foundation with Evan Daugherty adapting. Boom! also has a TV-side deal with 20th and has several projects in development with the likes of the UK’s Channel 4 (Butterfly) and DreamWorks Animation TV (Cow Boy).
Prior is repped by Gersh, Plattform and attorney Karl Austen.
