Nacho Vigalondo, who broke into the mainstream with the excellent Anne Hathaway monster movie Colossol, is time traveling with the creator of “The Walking Dead”.
Vigalondo, who also directed one of our VHS: Viral segments and the awesome Timecrimes, is teaming with Robert Kirkman to adapt the Image comic book “The Comeback”, says THR.
The comic, written by Ed Brisson, tells of two men, Seth and Mark, who are agents of Reconnect, a company that, for a hefty fee, will rescue a loved one just before they die by going back in time. It’s also an illegal venture that has come under the scrutiny of the FBI. When one mission goes south and Seth meets a future version of himself, the men find themselves on the run from both the FBI and their employers, who want to protect their dark secrets.
Sony Pictures has the rights to the time travel thriller package that will see Vigalondo write and direct the project that Kirkman will produce via his Skybound Entertainment banner.
Vigalondo’s creative partner, Nahikari Ipiña, will also produce as will Kirkman’s Skybound cohorts David Alpert, and Sean and Bryan Furst.
