Skybound Entertainment, the production company founded by Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead, and Universal Pictures have announced the commitment to produce the movie adaptation of Kill The Minotaur, the comic strip work of Christian Cantamessa and Chris Pasetto and drawn by Lukas Ketner, and Jean-Francois Beaulieu.
Cantamessa (writer of the video game Red Dead Redemption and director of the film of Air produced by Skybound) and Pasetto (co-writer of the Air) will script the project, which we hope will prove to be a sci-fi thriller of success, which will also take part in the producers David Alpert, Bryan Furst and Sean Furst.
The comic book series, launched last June, is a modern and fantastic remake of the ancient Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur, a monstrous creature half man and half bull.
In this expansion of the myth, that the bride and the setting more spacious and fantastic, Theseus is not yet entered in the labyrinth that king Minos built a Knossos to enclose the Minotaur. Theseus must defeat the monstrous creature that feeds on human sacrifices before he can escape and vent to her anger, and evil onto the whole world.
During a press conference Cantamessa and Pasetto certainly don't have hidden their entire satisfaction:
When we created the comic book, we wanted to give our personal vision of a classic Greek myth, which included strong characters in which it is easy to identify, and spectacular scenes typical of the blockbuster. Bring this story on the big screen is a dream that becomes a reality.
