Watchmen Scribe Tackles Zombies

David Hayter boards zombie comic book adaptation “Deadwood”

David Hayter has signed up to write and produce zombie comic book adaptation Deadworld

The Watchmen screenwriter has joined forces with Bill Mechanic to bring Gary Reed’s comic to the big screen.

Deadworld puts a new spin on the post-apocalypse zombie film, picking up after the undead have taken over the planet and focusing on King Zombie, a motorcycle-riding corpse with a grudge against human survivors.

“It’s very much about the design of the Deadworld and creating cool, frightening but not necessarily gory creatures,” Hayter said. “I am a huge fan of zombie mythology.”
