Graphic Content just found out from Variety, that the movie rights to Ben Templesmith’s Welcome to Hoxford comic has been bought by 1492. These seems like a odd choice to buy film rights too, but I’m very confident that it can be an amazing movie in the right hands. The story is about a psychiatrist and a patient trying to escape an institution run by werewolves, no stupid love stories or super heroes in this comic. The comic version of Welcome to Hoxford is available now. More info about the buy after the break.
“Chris Columbus’ 1492 Entertainment has picked up the film rights to IDW Publishing’s horror graphic novel “Welcome to Hoxford.”
Plans are for Columbus to produce the adaptation along with 1492 partners Michael Barnathan and Mark Radcliffe.
Columbus, who most recently wrapped Fox Atomic’s “I Love You, Beth Cooper,” is next expected to direct Fox 2000’s “Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief,” based on the Rick Riordan book. He’s also circling “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” for Paramount.”
