More great news comes to the team of comic book creators Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino as Hivemind acquires the rights to Gideon Falls published by Image Comics. The record breaking comic book series continues to gain accolades in the comic book publishing and now expands achievements through an upcoming TV series.
Described as an atmospheric thriller colliding rural mystery and urban horror, Gideon Falls follows an ensemble cast of seemingly random strangers as they become drawn into a mystery connected to a long-forgotten local legend.
“Gideon Falls is psychological horror told with a deeply humanistic touch, a story about imperfect people who confront their own demons – imagined and supernatural alike,” said Hivemind Co-President Jason Brown. “It is this kind of expertly fashioned, character-focused genre storytelling that inspired us to form Hivemind, and it is our mission to collaborate with world-class authors, artists, and rights holders like Jeff and Andrea to bring their stories to the screen in an authentic way.”
Hivemind currently produces the acclaimed science fiction series The Expanse – which recently moved to Amazon – as well as Netflix’s upcoming adaptation of The Witcher,
According to Jeff Lemire: “Gideon Falls is a story that is very near to our hearts, and Andrea and I could not be more excited to be partnering with Hivemind to bring the terror, and the story of Fred, Norton and The Black Barn, to an even wider audience.”
“It’s great to imagine Gideon Falls, and all these characters whom we’ve been working so hard to realize in the graphic novel, now coming to life on TV screens,” added series co-creator and artist Andrea Sorrentino.
