Death Ray Films and Maya Entertainment are set to turn David Wilkins and Kevin Munroe’s 2005 Dark Horse comic book “El Zombo Fantasma” into a feature film.
The story follows the mysterious murder of the world’s most notorious Mexican wrestler who bargains his way out of an eternity of fiery damnation by returning to Los Angeles to play guardian angel to a troublesome teen, Belisa Montoya.
He soon discovers that the teen is not what she seems and that their fates have been intertwined for centuries. The plan is to follow up the live action feature with a new animated series.
Kevin Munroe will write and direct with Chris Patton, Robert Sanchez, Jose Martinez and the greatest latino on the planet – LatinoReview.com editor Kellvin Chavez – producing.
