Renny Harlin is set to direct an adaptation of the graphic novel The Covenant, by Crossing Jordan writer Aron Coleite and artist Tone Rodriguez, says Production Weekly.
The script, written by J.S. Cardone, follows a group of four families whose patriarchs wield a vast eldritch power. Those powers have been passed down from father to son for generations. The main players in the book are Caleb, Pogue, Reid and Miller. The site says we meet them at the moment when they discover they are next in line to receive the power of the Covenant.
The story begins with the boys learning about the Covenant and how to use their powers. During that summer of fun and experimentation, they unknowingly release an evil out into the world. Four years later, the Covenant has to stop the menace they unleashed.
Production on the film is set to begin the first week of October in Montreal. Top Cow will release the first issue on September 1. The issue can also be read online here.
