Wanted producer overseeing adaptation
Disney, with Wanted producer Jason Netter, is aiming to adapt the graphic novel Monster Attack Network. Screen rights were acquired by publisher AIT/Planet Lar. An announcement initially came out of the San Diego Comic-Con.
In the book, penned by Marc Bernardin and Adam Freeman, a South Pacific island is repeatedly attacked by giant beasts emerging from the sea. “[Netter’s] Kickstart Entertainment is handling it,” Bernardin is reported as saying during a Comic-Con panel. “They also did Hellboy and The Road to Perdition, so it’s in pretty good hands.”
Bernardin and Freeman are currently penning a comic book prequel to the upcoming Summit actioner Push.
