Universal Adapting Ridiculously Cool Looking ‘Kill the Minotaur’

Skybound Entertainment, the company run by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, has teamed with Universal Pictures to adapt its comic, Kill the MinotaurTHR, says .

The comic, which launched as a series in June, is a modern and fantastical take on the ancient Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur, the creature that is half-man, half-bull. In this expansion of the myth, Theseus must still enter King Minos’ Labyrinth, but the latter has been expanded into a much larger and fantastical setting. And while Theseus must still defeat the Minotaur, a creature which feeds on human sacrifices, the monster has its own world-threatening designs.

The comic hails from Christian Cantamessa and Chris Pasetto. Cantamessa was one of the writers who worked on the video game Red Dead Redemption and also directed the Skybound-produced movie Air, which he co-wrote with Pasetto. Lukas Ketner and Jean-Francois Beaulieu are the artists.

Cantamessa and Pasetto are attached to write the script for the feature adaptation, which the producers hope to translate into a blockbuster sci-fi thriller.

Kirkman and his Skybound partner David Alpert will produce the feature project along with the company’s co-presidents of TV & film Bryan Furst and Sean Furst.

    Love the idea, but I don’t have a whole lot of confidence in the adaption.
