Garth Ennis Writing and Directing Webisodes and Feature Film Based on His Avatar Comic CROSSED
Garth Ennis will soon be trying his hand at directing for the first time, but the writer of some of comics' most violent, outrageous - and yet often still emotionally resonant - stories is looking to start off small with a series of live-action CROSSED webisodes. Shortly after that, the plan is to follow those with the CROSSED feature film.
In CROSSED, a plague that forces its victims to give in to their most evil thoughts has ravaged the population. A decade after the outbreak starts, a handful of survivors must face off with a small group of infected - called the crossed - that somehow have still retained a degree of self-control.
Ennis also tackles the writing duties on the project, penning both the scripts for the webisodes (which he described as "little vignettes" that would give insight into the world of the story) and the films' screenplay.
Filming is set to start in Spring, for a late 2013 release.
