Movie News

Avatar Press’ acclaimed comic book series CROSSED is getting the live-action treatment, with creator Garth Ennis stepping in to write and direct.

We should imagine anybody who’s read CROSSED are justifiably questioning how on Earth the property will ever survive the transition from page to screen. This series is brutally violent, telling the terrifying story of a plague which causes the infected to carry out their most depraved thoughts. In short, it’s very rapey. Even dolphins aren’t safe.

Yeah, it’s definitely not going to be everybody's cup of tea that's for sure.

Ennis will first develop a series of CROSSED webisodes, which will then lead to a feature length movie. We wish him the best of luck getting any of it past the censors!

We’ll have more on CROSSED as it develops. In the meantime, why not check out Ennis’ filmmaking chops with the trailer for his 2011 debut short STITCHED…

Yeah, no way this makes it to the big screen. They could possibly get away with an animated series but there's no way you could do justice to the comic and still get a certificate.
