Horror comiccreator extraordinaire, Dan Brereton told fans at last weekend's Motor CityComic Con that he is developing a new concept, called Undeadly, asboth a screenplay and a comic book.
Undeadlytells the story of the undead heroine, Lily, a sword-wielding, ass-kicking,femme fatale demon-hunter. "It's monster kung-fu set in a necropolisinfested with zombies, vampires, demons and all manner of monsters,"Brereton told C2F, "kind of like Universal Studios meets The Warriorswith some Night of The Living Dead-laced action."
Circle ofConfusion producer David Engel is developing the project with Brereton. As we reportedlast summer Engel is also looking to set up The Psycho, whichBrereton co-created with writer James Hudnall.
Jonathan Bresmanis working on the screenplay for the movie. Brereton tells us, "We haveco-plotted the outline based on my existing comic book story outline andplot."
The comiccreator will have plenty of input on the script and is happy working withBresman so far. "As he's chosen to tackle this project with such ferocity, I'mcomfortable with him taking point on writing chores," Brereton said."And I'm always here to consult as the creator of Undeadly."
Bresmanpreviously worked at LucasFilm, providing character designs for The Phantom Menace.He also authored the book, The Art of Star Wars: Episode 1: The PhantomMenace and wrote the web-toon Cosmic Soda Pop.
Engel wasresponsible for bringing Bresman to the project. Engel told C2F,"Our goal is to harness his amazingintelligence."
Brereton is alsodeveloping the concept as a comic book. However, the current focus is on thescreenplay.
