Warren Ellis’ Black Summer to Get Adapted

Vigilante Entertainment is launching operations by developing Warren Ellis’ comic book series “Black Summer” with Ryne Pearson (Knowing) attached to write the screenplay, reports Variety.

“Black Summer,” published by Avatar Press in 2007, centers on superhero team the Seven Guns, a group of scientist-adventurers who modified their own bodies for street-fighting in order to take back their West Coast city from a corrupt police force, criminal local government and rapacious private security forces.

Vigilante is headed by Hicham Benkirane, former head of audiovisual development at French comicbook publisher Les Humanoides Associes.
