Craven and Niles Team Up for New Comic-to-Film Project

Wes Craven‘s been making films for over 40 years, but he’s still charting new territory. Now he’s co-creating a comic book, which he will eventually turn into a movie, and he’s doing it with none other than Steve Niles of 30 Days of Night fame.

The project is called Coming of Rage, and it will be Craven and producer Arnold Rifkin‘s first publication through Liquid Comics, who they signed a partnership deal with in 2010. Craven created the concept, and writer Niles will pen the five-issue miniseries. The eventual film will be produced Rifkin and Liquid Comics CEO Sharad Devarajan.

There’s no word on concept or story for Coming of Rage save for the above teaser art, but Deadline is reporting that “it is pretty clear that there’ll be a healthy dose of horror, blood and suspense.”

Craven, best known for creating A Nightmare on Elm Street, has spent the last few years producing remakes of his popular prior hits like Nightmare, The Hills Have Eyes and Last House on the Left. His last two films were the sequel Scream 4, and his original screenplay My Soul to Take.

Coming of Rage is scheduled to be published sometime next year.
