MTV Buys the Whole ‘Damn Nation’

MTV seems to have forgotten all about music videos now that they are overwrote with original programming and now venturing even further into the world of movies and that trend continues as Variety has announced that MTV Films was acquired the feature film rights to Andy Cosby’s Dark Horse comic “Damn Nation,” a story of a vampire takeover of the United States.

Cosby will pen the screenplay and Paramount Pictures will distribute the feature which is set in a United States evacuated due to an attack from vampires that has left the nation suffering from a vampire plague and forced the government to relocate to London as scientists search for a cure.

There is no word on a director or whether the three-issue mini-series will be developed as one film or thought of as a trilogy from the start.
