Benderspink Productions tapped director Steven C. Miller to helm their upcoming adaptation of AREA 52, reports Variety. The film will be based on the Image Comics creation originally created by Brian Haberlin. Benderspink's Chris Bender and JC Spink will share in the producing credits alongside Haberlin and Quattro's Jim Strader. Steve Miller just wrapped up his directorial debut with a zombie film called Automaton Transfusion, a flick which was recently acquired by Dimension after gaining notice at some festivals this year.

Plot Concept: At a storage facility in Antarctica that houses top-secret alien wares after Nevada's Area 51 is done testing them, an Army nurse must restore order after a mercenary attack has unleashed a menacing terror.

Never read the comic, as I stick to more traditional fare from Marvel and DC. But having said that it does sound pretty interesting. Now the big question is what sort of budget are they going with. Because if they're doing it on the cheap it can easily turn into crap.

What's not mentioned is that the comic was a dark comedy.

I've never heard of this either but then again I (usually) dont read image comics. so this would be like Area 51.2 where aliens go when they're no longer needed!? how cool I should check this book out!

When I read the name "Miller", I thought it was George Miller, the Mad Max director. So it's not just Marvel and DC comics that are being made into the movies. Comic book movies, like remakes, are going to be around a while.

speaking of Miller, isnt Steve Miller directing the JLA movie? (am I wrong?) or is Steven Miller different than Steve Miller?
