According to The Wrap, Outlier and new production partner Pathbender have acquired film and TV rights to the graphic novel Savage.
Created by Jeff Frank and co-written by Frank, Dan Wickline and Steve Niles (“30 Days of Night”), Savage is a supernatural thriller illustrated by award-winning X-Men artist Mike Mayhew.
James Cotten (“La linea”) has been attached to direct the film, “which follows a mysterious killer who is hunting down supernatural creatures. While looking for a prodigy to continue his work, he finds himself in the midst of a battle between the legendary Bigfoot and a pack of werewolves.”
