Even though the first issue just debuted this week, Deadline brings word that the Image Comics series Wytches has been acquired by New Regency for a feature adaptation set up at Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B.
Created by Eisner Award winners Scott Snyder and Jock, who will serve as executive producers on the film, Wytches is officially described as follows:
“Across the globe, century after century, men and women were burned, drowned, hanged, tortured, imprisoned, persecuted, and murdered for witchcraft. None of them were witches. They died protecting a terrible and hidden truth: witches, real witches, are out there. They are ancient, elusive, and deadly creatures that are rarely seen and even more rarely survived.”
It was revealed earlier this week that the first issue of Wytches had sold out at the distributor level and would be going back for a second printing, so run out and buy your copy today!
