The Hollywood Reporter brings an ironic story today as it’s been announced “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” executive producer Craig Titley will adapt the comic book series Hoax Hunters for the big screen.
“I’ve never met a a conspiracy that I didn’t love,” Titley tells the outlet. “It forces people to think outside the box and it’s a way to rewire reality.”
Titley also expressed a desire to stay as close to the source material as possible. Transformers producer Don Murphy is set to produce the adaptation with Heavy Metal’s Jeff Krelitz and David Boxenbaum.
Initially an Image Comics release, Hoax Hunters is now published by Heavy Metal. Created by Michael Moreci and Steve Seeley the series is officially described as follows:
“Cryptids. Aliens. Monsters. All the world’s bizarre secrets–what if they were real? Their existence would be debunked by a reality TV show! HOAX HUNTERS is that show, publicly disproving all variety of lore. But their real goal is the opposite: as the world’s dark corners surface, the HOAX HUNTERS cover them up.”
