Hollywood adapting the three issue miniseries…

The folks over at THR have learned that Andrew Adamson (‘Mr Pip,’ ‘ The Chronicles of Narnia,’ ‘Shrek’) has closed a deal to direct a film adaptation of the acclaimed 2012 Dark Horse Entertainment comics miniseries ‘Breath of Bones.’

Written by Steve Niles (’30 Days of Night’) and Matt Santoro, with art by David Wachter, the three issue series is “set during World War II and tells of a British plane that crashes into a Jewish village. The crash brings Nazi attention, forcing the villagers to defend themselves, with one rabbi and his grandson building a Golem creature and bringing him to monstrous life.”

“Telling a story can be tough,” Niles told THR. “It’s the one monster rooted in religion and mysticism so I wanted to be respectful. I decided to tell it as a World War II fable. It’s a story of a grandfather teaching his grandson how to make a monster to defend his village against a Nazi invasion.”

Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg are producing the adaptation, alongside Adamson and Strange Weather partner Aron Warner.
