FARMHAND COMIC BOOK SERIES OPTIONED FOR TELEVISION BY AMC

Bestselling comic book series Farmhand, created and illustrated by Rob Guillory, has been optioned for  television development by AMC/AMC Studios. Guillory is set to write the pilot for the series and will executive produce alongside LaToya Morgan (The Walking Dead, Into the Badlands).

"I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring Farmhand to AMC,” said Guillory. "I knew if I was ever going to adapt Farmhand, I’d need partners whose bold vision preserved and complemented my own, and I’ve found that with LaToya Morgan and the fine folks at AMC. Their enthusiasm for this project has been absolutely infectious, and I think together we’re going to make a show that is very unique and very special."

Farmhand follows Jedidiah Jenkins, a simple farmer, but one whose cash crop isn’t corn or soy. He grows fast-healing, plug-and-play human organs. For years, Jed’s organic transplants have brought healing to many, but deep in the soil of the Jenkins Family Farm something sinister has take…

IDW Publishing Declassifies the Inhuman Menace Our Astronauts Faced! IDW Publishing is proud to debut Rom: Dire Wraiths, a three-part comic book miniseries about Earth’s incomparable heroes – the astronauts whose mission among the stars brought them face-to-face with the Dire Wraiths, the shape-shifting scourge of the universe!

Written by Chris Ryall, the mastermind behind IDW’s Rom comic book renaissance, and gorgeously illustrated by Luca Pizzari (Marvel’s Weapon X), the Dire Wraiths story is guaranteed to be a creepy tale of a secret alien invasion happening on a rocky satellite 240,000 miles from home!

They made it past the initial nail-biting part of the journey, with a speedy liftoff from Merritt Island. They were thrown left and right against their straps in spasmodic little jerks as they rode into orbit and steered insanely fast into space. But that would not be the biggest challenge they would face. As they set foot on the moon, they found something inhuman waiting for them,…

INTRADA Announces Christopher Young's VIRTUOSITY

VIRTUOSITY

Music Composed by CHRISTOPHER YOUNG
INTRADA ISC 431


Intrada announces the premiere release of Christopher Young's electrifying score to the 1995 Paramount Pictures Denzel Washington action-thriller, Virtuosity. The score moves between two worlds – hard-hitting techno electronica that pumps up the brutal virtual computer world of the movie's universe and pulse-pounding orchestral action music for the film's final reels as reality and virtual reality collide. The dazzling array emanating from a cyberpunk ocean of synthetic textures, techo beats and electric riffs is unique to both composer and film, adding musical atmosphere to the relentless and simply evil AI SID. The line between electronic and orchestral worlds does not coincide with SID's emergence from virtual world to physical reality, but seques during the film's final third, when SID takes a child hostage and launches Death TV, unleashing ferocious orchestral fireworks as protagonist Parker Barnes …
