“The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman is expanding his TV universe to the world of exorcisms. Explains The Hollywood Reporter, following a multiple-cable network bidding war, Cinemax has landed “Outcast,” a drama based on Kirkman’s upcoming Image/Skybound comic of the same name. The cable network has given a script commitment with large penalty to the project.
“The comic and potential series centers on Kyle Barnes, who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. Now an adult, he embarks on a spiritual journey to find answers, but what he uncovers could mean the end of life on Earth as we know it.”
The comic will debut in 2014.
Personally, I am a huge fan of “The Walking Dead” comic, even if I don’t like the show, and hope Cinemax can deliver an awesome new horror series.
Kirkman will pen the script and executive produce alongside Circle of Confusion’s David Alpert (“The Walking Dead”).
