Good news werewolf fans! Veteran producer Edward R. Pressman has optioned the rights to Archaia Entertainment’s popular werewolf graphic novel Feeding Ground. That means we have another werewolf film on the way!
Created by Swifty Lang, Michael Lapinski and Chris Mangun, the story tells of an illegal immigrant trafficker — a “coyote,” in cross-border parlance — who is forced to smuggle his own family into America after his young brother runs afoul of a local gangster. With the cartel on his heels and U.S. Border Patrol agents bearing down from the other side, the family is trapped in the no-man’s land known as the Devil’s Highway and discovers the entire party is being stalked by supernatural creatures.
Feeding Ground was published as a hardcover graphic novel last year to excellent reviews and is one of the few comics to be released simultaneously in English and Spanish.
To keep the movie feeling authentic, much of the dialogue from the Latino characters will be in Spanish, with the American side speaking English.
“Feeding Ground is an intense and terrifying thriller with a subtle but pointed commentary on immigration in modern America,” said Pressman. “The graphic novel is so cinematic in nature — as soon as I read it, I knew we could make a film that would resonate with a wide audience.”
Hurray for new werewolf movies!? Have any of you read the comic, if so, what did you think? Are you guys looking forward to seeing this film?
