Lionsgate Adapting Popular Zombie Comic 'Z-Men' For The Big-Screen!!


By Matt O'Bryant 

What's up guys and gals,  

It was jst a couple of months ago that Lionsgate announced that they were adapting the popular video game series Borderlands for the big screen with Take-Two.  Now it looks as though they are moving ahead with another cool adaptation, this time of the popular comic book series Z-Men.  Get the details from Variety below.

According to Variety

Lionsgate is adapting the zombie comic book “Z-Men” into a horror movie.

The studio will partner with Double Take, a subsidiary of videogame developer and publisher Take-Two Interactive Software. Written by Jeff McComsey, “Z-Men” is the flagship title in Double Take’s recently launched universe surrounding the horror franchise “Night of the Living Dead.”

“We’re delighted to expand our relationship with our friends at Take-Two by partnering with their comic book arm, Double Take, in bringing ‘Z-Men’ to the big screen,” said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairs Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger.

“We are pleased to expand our partnership with Lionsgate, who has the right team to bring to life on screen what Double Take brings to life in comics,” said Double Take General Manager Bill Jemas. “We look forward to seeing Lionsgate’s creativity transform the ‘Z-Men’ story into an exciting feature film, and everyone on the Double Take team is incredibly enthused at this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

I'm very interested in seeing what they can do with this property.  It will be interesting to watch this project progress, and we will keep you updated as we receive more information.
