Graphic Novel In The Dust Planned for Film Adaptation

In the Dust, an upcoming graphic novel from Top Cow, has been planned for a feature film adaptation, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter.

The comic (the release of which has not yet been solicited by the publisher), offers an alternate history of 1930's Chicago wherein Dust Bowl storms are secretly a means by which vampires can travel and ravage wherever they wind up. The lead character is a G-Man investigating the sweeping attacks who is forced to team with Al Capone and his men.

The comic book arrives from George Mahaffey and Christian Duce, the former of which is an attorney-turned-screenwriter, responsible for the in-development project, Heatseekers at Paramount Pictures. He will also provide the screenplay for the film version, set up at Solipsist Films.
