AfterShock Media has announced that Jim Mickle will direct the film adaptation of Donny Cates‘ comic series God Country. Cates adapted the screenplay for the film. Lee Kramer and Jon Kramer from AfterShock Media will produce along with Jim Mickle and Linda Moran.
God Country was originally published in 2017 by Image Comics to critical acclaim. The first issue immediately sold out and had to be reprinted four times before being collected in trade paperback.
In God Country, Emmett Quinlan is an elderly widower rattled by dementia. Emmett isn’t just a problem for his children–his violent outbursts are more than the local cops can handle. When a tornado levels his home–as well as the surrounding West Texas town–a restored Quinlan rises from the wreckage. An enchanted sword at the eye of the storm gives him not just a sound mind and body, but phenomenal power. He’s now the only man who can face the otherworldly creatures the sword has drawn down to the Lone Star State in a film that will bring a Western aesthetic to the superhero genre.
Sweet Tooth is heading to Netflix for a live-action eight-episode series order. The series is being produced by Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey and is based on the Vertigo comic series created by Jeff Lemire.
Released in September 2009, the comic series ran for 40 issues and stars Gus, a human/deer being who lives deep in the woods. He eventually leaves his home in the forest and discovers a world ravaged by a cataclysmic event.
Jim Mickle and Beth Schwartz will pen the script, executive produce, and serve as co-showrunners. Mickle will also direct.
Christian Convery, Nonso Anozie, Adeel Akhtar, and Will Forte will star in the series, with James Brolin attached to voice the show’s narrator.
Lemire has also revealed he will be reviving the series having teased Sweeth Tooth: The Return on Twitter.
