SDCC 2018: Titan Comics’ Under Heads to the Movies

Titan Comics‘ graphic novel Under, about mutated creatures lurking in the sewers under a major US metropolis, is coming to the big-screen, with Franco-Belgian comics powerhouse Media Participations Group, Titan Comics, and U.K. producer Born Wild bringing the project to life.

Under was created by prolific French writer Christophe Bec and his regular illustrator and collaborator Stefano Rafael. It is published by Le Lombard, which sits within Media Participations Group’s stable of comic book publishers alongside the likes of Dargaud, and is represented by Mediatoon.

Set in the near future in the city’s vast sewer complex, which have become a war zone, complete with mutant spiders and crocodiles, disgraced former detective, Jericho, leads the subterranean police force attempting to preserve a semblance of order. Sandra Yeatman, a young female scientist, embeds herself with Jericho’s team, to his disdain, and they battle to stop the underwater carnage spreading above ground.

Anthony Alleyne, whose Sunburn recently played at the London Screenings, will adapt the action-sci-fi project with up and coming writer Brennig Hayden. Alleyne will also produce the movie through Born Wild. Laurent Duvault of Mediatoon, Kristian van der Heyden of Harald House and Annemiek van der Hell of Windmill Film are all confirmed co-producers. Raymond Van der Kaaij of Revolver is also on board as executive producer. The budget is Euro8 million.

The comics launched in France in 2010, with English-language versions following late last year. The plan is to shoot the film in late 2019.

‘Under the Dome’ is coming to an end this season

Under the Dome… This show is so weird to me. Sometimes, I watch it and I am completely sucked in, but other times — it’s painful to watch. THe 11th episode I hated. It was as ridiculous as it gets. Regardless, I and most of the people who stuck with it for these past three years will have another show taken away.

Yes, today, CBS announced that with Under the Dome‘s 13 episode this season, the 39 for all three years, the show will conclude. The show loosely based on Stephen King’s novel has not been ordered by the network. It’s official, Under the Dome is done. It will not come back next summer for a fourth season.

“Two years ago, Under the Dome broke new ground in the summer and became an instant hit on CBS, as well as with viewers around the world,” said Nina Tassler, chairman. “Dome’s event storytelling and multi-platform business model paved the way for more original summer programming with the successful rollouts of Extant and Zoo. We’re excited to present the final chapter in Chester’s Mill as the story comes full circle, with the Dome coming down as dramatically as it went up.”
