DEAD WEST by the doughty duo of Rick Spears and Rob G. (TEENAGERS FROM MARS) is the latest graphic novel to be headed to the big screen. According to Fangoria, Adam Green (HATCHET) is slated to direct.
Stephen LâHeureux is producing under his Solipsist Films banner (currently in preproduction on LOST SOULS director Janusz Kaminskiâs WWII drama WHITE ROSE).
This time, Green will be shifting away from the swampy environs of HATCHET and splashing the red against an Old West backdrop. Based on the 2005 graphic novel of the same name by Rick Spears and Rob G., WEST concerns a bounty hunter who happens upon the cursed town of Lazarus, a plot of land that was once an Indian village but was laid to waste during westward expansion. This settlement soon lives up to its name when its former inhabitants rise from the dead to exact revenge on the âwhite manâ? who put âem six feet under.
