In news coming out of the San Diego Comic-Con, it has been announced that Christophe Bec and Stefano Rafael’s creature comic book Under is to receive a big screen adaptation courtesy of Media Participations Group, Titan Comics and producer Anthony Alleyne of Born Wild.
Under is set in the near future in the city’s vast sewer complex, which have become a war zone, complete with mutant spiders and crocodiles, disgraced former detective, Jericho, leads the subterranean police force attempting to preserve a semblance of order. Sandra Yeatman, a young female scientist, embeds herself with Jericho’s team, to his disdain, and they battle to stop the underwater carnage spreading above ground.
“It’s exciting to collaborate with tireless and tenacious creatives like Alleyne,” Bec and Raffaele said. “Under is a story which is close to our hearts and it was his and Brennig’s strong vision of blending the spirit of our original work with contemporary social elements that won us over. Many of our works together have been influenced by movies and the cinema, and to see ‘Under’ adapted on the big screen would show true appreciation.”
“Anthony is clear about what he wants to do with the property, which is to establish a powerful franchise we are proud to be part of,” Duvault added.
Filming on Under is expected to take place in 2019.
