Image Comics' CHEW Getting Another Shot At The Small Screen; Animated Movie In Development
Image Comics' popular series Chew was previously adapted into a TV pilot for Showtime, but the series never moved forward. Now, another attempt at a live action small screen take is in the works, with an animated movie being developed for home video and digital releases.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Image Comics' successful series Chew is getting another shot at being developed for a screen take. The John Layman-created storyline was previously adapted as a pilot for Showtime, but never moved forward. Jeff Krelitz and his Quality Transmedia banner picked up the rights afterwards. The producer was behind adapting Image's Peter Panzerfaust into a motion comic, which led to BBC Worldwide picking it up for a television translation. For Chew, he is producing a direct to digital and home video animated movie (which is in pre-production) while developing a live action TV series, for which he is currently meeting with showrunners. The Chew comic book "centers on a detective who is a cibopath, a person who gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats, and is set in a world where bird meats are illegal after a bird flu killed millions of Americans." Are you looking forward to the television series and/or animated film?
