New Line has picked up Drafted, a comic book adaptation to be produced by Benderspink (A History of Violence), says The Hollywood Reporter.
In the book, aliens come to Earth and warn mankind of an imminent invasion from another alien species. The first group of aliens drafts humans into boot camps and trains them to defend themselves against the invaders.
The company secured the film rights to the Devil’s Due Publishing property at Comic Con International in July. Writers are being sought.
Other comic-based projects the company is developing include Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina and Power and Glory at New Line; Ghouly Boys at Mandate; Pet Robots at Disney; “Preacher” at HBO; and “The Pro” at Spike TV.
