When ever I see the names Wes Craven or Steve Niles I get a little bit excited, but when I see that they are working together to unleash some truly awesome projects, I get beside myself with freakin’ excitement. What to know what’s going on? Read on for all the details.
According to Deadline, Wes Craven and Steve Niles have teamed up for the graphic novel Coming of Rage, which is also set for a movie adaptation.
Wes Craven created the comic while Steve Niles wrote it. Niles also wrote the graphic novels 30 Days Of Night and Wake The Dead. The five-issue comic series and the graphic novel of Coming of Rage will be released via Liquid Comics in 2013.
The Live Free or Die Hard producer Arnold Rifkin and Liquid Comics CEO Sharad Devarajan are developing a feature film version of Coming of Rage with Wes Craven.
Plot details are currently unavailable, but we are told that it will feature plenty of horror, blood and suspense. I just hope that the film comes together and Craven is directing, perhaps this could be the project that brings him back.
For the record, I love Wes Craven, but I felt his previous effort My Soul to Take, didn’t quite have the punch I was looking for, also the post-conversion 3D is never a good thing.
My fingers are crossed that this comes together, and I am utterly excited. What do you guys think?
