Freaks of the Heartland Director AnnouncedGoon
THR reports that Overture Films has attached David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) to direct Freaks of the Heartland. The film is actually based off of the Dark Horse graphic novel written by Steve Niles. Scribes Peter Sattler and Geoff Davey have adapted the comic for the big screen.
Illustrated by Greg Ruth, Niles' six-part 2004 series about the horrible secret of a rural Middle American town involves Trevor Owen's attempts to protect his "monster" of a 6-year-old younger brother and Gristlewood Valley's other "freaks" from their parents' worst instincts.
