Project’s produced “Crawl” author Alan Robert (bassist for the band Life of Agony), Jeff Mazzola and Chris White. The producers are seeking a writer to adapt “Crawl.”
The recently published IDW comic, which takes place in an isolated country town during the frigid winter months, centers on a young family as they cope with a series of disturbing events that force them to question their relationship, their faith and their very existence.
