Ready To Explore Lore?
Another graphic novel gets adapted

Imagine, just for a moment, that you are a development executive who fancies themselves as a mad scientist. You take body parts from Men In Black. You crossbreed that with the spark that is Hollywood’s obsession for buying up every graphic novel in existence and priming it for the screen. What lurches away from your diabolical slab of experimentation? Why, a movie rights deal for Lore, a graphic novel about the hunt for mythological creatures.

Created by Ahsley Wood and TP Louise for IDW Publishing, the book follows a young man who discovers that all the creatures from folklore are, in fact, very real, and keen on invading our world. Naturally, humanity needs protecting from these rampaging beasties, and so there’s a secret squad who are charged with maintaining the balance between the legendary and us regular folk. Sort of, you know, how Hellboy already does. But differently. Or something.

Still, it’s apparently enough of an original concept that producer Andrew Lazar has snapped up the permission to turn it into a film, and he’s hired Priest writer Cory Goodman to begin working on a script with Jeremy Lott.

Wood is no stranger to movie deals, however: last year, almost to the day, he sold the rights to another of his titles, World War Robot, to Jerry Bruckheimer.

There’s no word on either of the projects just yet, though of course Lore has only just begun its trip through the dark, scary wood that is development.
