Outlier and new production partner Pathbender have acquired film and TV rights for the Shadowline/Image Comics graphic novel “Savage,” which pits Bigfoot against a pack of werewolves, TheWrap first reported.
Created by Jeff Frank and co-written by Frank, Dan Wickline and Steve Niles (“30 Days of Night”), “Savage” is a supernatural thriller illustrated by award-winning “X-Men” artist Mike Mayhew.
James Cotten (La linea) is attached to direct the film, which “follows a mysterious killer who is hunting down supernatural creatures. While looking for a prodigy to continue his work, he finds himself in the midst of a battle between the legendary Bigfoot and a pack of werewolves.“
Pathbender’s E. Thompson (Hansel and Gretel Get Baked) and John Adams will produce the movie, while Outlier’s Mark Morgan (The Twilight Saga) will executive produce.
