“Transformers” franchise producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura is set to turn Bob Quinn and Andy Shapiro’s graphic novel “Guntown,” which he helped conceive, into a transmedia franchise with planned film, TV, video games and digital adaptations.
Set in a not-too-distant future where the federal government passes the Gun Violence in America Act, the new law mandates that anyone wishing to possess or who is caught carrying a firearm of any kind is relocated to a massive walled city in the deserts of New Mexico – the only place in the country where firearms can be used.
That isn’t the only comic adaptation in the works today with filmmaker Christopher MacBride having been hired to pen a film adaptation of the Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire graphic novel “A.D. After Death” for Immersive Pictures. Josh Bratman will produce.
The three-part epic is set in a future where a genetic cure for death has been found. Years after the discovery, one man starts to question everything, leading him on a mind-bending journey that will bring him face-to-face with his past.
