Rogue Pictures, the studio that released Shawn of the Dead and Seed of Chucky, has picked up rights to the Devil’s Due comic book series Lost Squad, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Written by Chris Kirby and illustrated by Alan Robinson, the comic has a group of American Soldiers taking on supernatural Nazi forces and other spine-tingling threats during World War II.
The film adaptation will be produced by Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter, who earlier this year brought the Devil’s Due comic book Hack/Slash to Rogue. They also have the Vin Diesel vehicle Hitman, based on a popular video game, set up at 20th Century Fox. Devil’s Due’s Josh Blaylock will co-produce the Lost Squad pic, which doesn’t yet have a writer.
