Last month, Edward R. Pressman Brings, producer of The Crow and American Psycho, acquired the right to Archaia’s horror graphic novel, Feeding Ground, created by Swifty Lang, Michael Lapinski and Chris Mangun. The film will be directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and adapted for the screen by Carlos Coto.
Let’s get things straight. “Feeding Ground” is a werewolf story (I told you they were making a comeback), and it centers around a smuggler who carts people across the Mexico-U.S. border as he gets caught up with a bad drug deal, werewolves, and the border police.

Veteran producer Edward R. Pressman (The Crow, American Psycho) has snatched up the film rights to Feeding Ground, based on the graphic novel by Swifty Lang, Michael Lapinski and Chris Mangun.
The book is, “The story of an illegal immigrant trafficker — a “coyote,” in cross-border parlance — who is forced to smuggle his own family into America after his young brother runs afoul of a local gangster. With the cartel on his heels and U.S. Border Patrol agents bearing down from the other side, the family is trapped in the no-man’s land known as the Devil’s Highway and discovers the entire party is being stalked by supernatural creatures.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pressman has set Alfonso Gomez-Rejon to direct and has hired Carlos Coto (“24″) to write the screenplay. Gomez-Rejon was formerly a personal assistant to Martin Scorsese and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, so he’s learned from the best. The plan is to keep the Spanish characters speaking Spanish, with the Americans speaking English.

Enter Christopher Mangun, co-creator of Archaia’s “FEEDING GROUND”.
