David Armstrong To Direct Adaptation Of CRAWL TO ME

The cinematographer from the Saw film series has been attached to direct a film adaptation of the IDW horror comic book Crawl To Me, which is written by writer/musician Alan Robert.

A press release from IDW Publishing has revealed that David Armstrong has been attached to direct an adaptation of Crawl To Me, a horror-based comic book series published by IDW which follows a couple who have to face what's apparently an evil entity in their home. The comics are written by musician/writer Alan Robert (who is also producing the film adaptation). Armstrong previously worked on the cinematography for the Saw films, and Crawl To Me will be his second film as a director. A writer is currently being sought to pen the adaptation.


The first printing of Alan Robert’s critically acclaimed horror graphic novel, Crawl to Me (IDW Publishing), has sold out within a week of its release. As a result, the award-winning publisher is currently scheduling a second pressing. In related news, director David A. Armstrong, cinematographer for the successful box-office hit franchise, Saw, is now attached to direct a live-action adaptation of Crawl to Me for the big screen. Armstrong is currently directing the indie hostage drama, Pawn, starring Michael Chiklis (The Shield, Fantastic Four) and Academy Award winner, Forest Whitaker with Ray Liotta and Common supporting.

“The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of excitement, to say the least,” says creator, Robert. “Crawl to Me has already exceeded all of my expectations. Creating comics has been a life-long passion of mine and I’m extremely grateful to be given the chance to tell my crazy stories. To see them come to life on film is a whole other level of awesomeness. I love horror movies, especially the ones with shocking twist endings like The Sixth Sense and The Others, so it’s my goal to create that same type of jaw-dropping impact with Crawl to Me.”

The Crawl to Me graphic novel, written and illustrated by the Life of Agony bassist, collects the four-issue mini-series and boasts a beautifully painted cover by Monocyte artist, Menton3. The book’s introduction is written by the legendary Walter Simonson (Thor), who happens to be Robert’s former cartooning teacher.

“I knew Alan Robert had juice with his Wire Hangers series, and Crawl to Me is even more of a singular creator’s vision come to life,” said Chris Ryall, Chief Creative Officer / Editor-in-Chief for IDW Publishing. “To then see that graphic novel get voted Best Mini-Series of the Year by horror fans at ComicMonsters.com and now sell out its initial press run is very gratifying and appreciated. Even more, it speaks to the market for more unique comics amidst a world of superhero relaunches and big licensed comics.”
