Actor Seth Rogen has been quite busy in the comic-adaptation game it seems, as we recently announced he would be behind an adaptation of Fear Agent, and now we're learning he's bringing another comic series to the screen...
...Via THR, Lionsgate is in final negotiations to pick up an adaptation for comic series Memetic, with Rogen producing along with Evan Goldberg and James Weaver through their Point Grey banner. Mattson Tomlin, who wrote Matt Reeves The Batman, will write the script.
"A meme known as the Good Time Sloth becomes a viral sensation, and half a day later everyone from the President to the coffee shop barista become “screamers,” succumbing to a murderous rage.
Some prove to be immune to the meme and the story centers on a young man, colorblind, who tries to navigate society’s fall into an apocalypse as he tried to find his boyfriend."
The comic was originally written by James Tynion IV for Boom! Studios.
Boom! Studios’ Ross Ritchie and Stephen Christie are also producing. Boom!’s Adam Yoelin will executive produce.
