Wes Craven and Steve Niles. Those are two names that when uttered separately command attention from the horror fan. The two of them together working on one project?!? Okay, now we have a five-alarm horror geek fire cooking!
According to Deadline, Wes Craven and Steve Niles have teamed for the graphic novel Coming of Rage and a possible movie adaptation, too. The Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream director created the upcoming comic, and Niles, who penned the graphic novels 30 Days of Night and Wake the Dead, wrote it.
Live Free or Die Hard producer Arnold Rifkin and Liquid Comics CEO Sharad Devarajan are developing a feature film version of Coming of Rage with Craven. Though no details are available on the comic or the film, it is pretty clear that there will be a healthy dose of horror, blood, and suspense.
Coming of Rage is the first publication in Craven and Rifkin’s partnership with Liquid Comics, announced in 2010. It will be released by Liquid in 2013 as both a five-issue comic series and a graphic novel. Liquid Comics plans to have additional digital elements for iPads and iPhones to complement the publication.
