Hey guys, Jana here,
James Badge Dale has signed onto the film adaptation of a Boom! Studios comic ‘The Empty Man‘. The story features a tortured ex-cop who has the tragic deaths of his wife and son in the forefront of his mind. He struggles to find a missing girl but soon discovers a sinister presence all around him.
David Britten Prior will write and direct the supernatural flick, he’s mostly spent time directing and producing video documentaries and shorts. It’s the first Boom! Studios comic to be adapted under a first look deal the company has at Fox. The source material was written by Cullen Bunn and illustrated by Vanesa Del Rey, but Prior’s script goes its own way and departs from the comic. The project hopes to begin filming in South Africa this fall.
