Nacho Cerda To Direct I Am Legion

Nacho Cerda To Direct <i>I Am Legion</i>

The French vampire comic by Fabien Nury and John Cassaday, is being developed as an English-language movie by Paris production company Full House.

It’s the first project in a new four-picture deal with Les Humanoides Associes, the French publisher best known for Metal Hurlant.

Debuting in 2004, I Am Legion centers on a World War II plot by Nazis to control the powers of a 10-year-old vampire while Allied forces scramble to uncover how their own ranks have been infiltrated by Hitler’s elite.

The Full House production will be directed by Spain's Nacho Cerda (The Abandoned) from a script by Richard Stanley (Hardware, The Abandoned). Humanoides partner Pierre Spengler (Superman) will co-produce the $13.4 million-$16.4 million film, which is expected to shoot late this year in Eastern Europe using English actors.

The comic book series was originally published by Les Humanoïdes Associés in three albums, Le faune dansant (The Dancing Faun, June 2004), Vlad (January 2006) and Les trois singes (The Three Monkeys, November 2007). This was then translated into English by Justin Kelly and was originally released in 2004 by the American-based arm of Humanoïdes, Humanoids Publishing, through their deal with DC Comics but only one prestige format book was released. The series was later split into six comic books under a new deal between Humanoids and Devil's Due Productions and finally fully released in 2009.
