Snyder and Lemire’s A.D.: After Death Gets Picked Up by Sony
After a multi-party bidding war, Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire‘s A.D: After Death has been acquired by Sony. The three-part series is being published by Image Comics. Snyder and Lemire will serve as Executive Producers on the project.
Josh Bratman of Immersive Pictures will work alongside Eric Fineman at Columbia to produce the film. Bratman is also developing Lemire and Dustin Nguyen’s comic series Descender into a feature film franchise.
A.D. is set in a future where a genetic cure for death has been found. One man, years after the discovery of the cure, starts to question everything, leading him on a mind-bending journey that will bring him face-to-face with his past and his own mortality.
A.D. is the first project Snyder and Lemire, longtime friends and both acclaimed and bestselling comic creators in their own right, have worked on together. This is the first project Lemire has illustrated that he has not also written. Book 1 was published November 2016, with Book 2 available December 21, 2016.
The deal for A.D.: After Death was brokered by Angela Cheng Caplan of Cheng Caplan Company, Inc., along with Lemire’s attorney Allison Binder of Stone, Genow, Smelkinson, Binder & Christopher, LLP and Snyder’s attorney Lillian Laserson of Laserson Law.
