Universal Cable Productions (“Being Human,” “Defiance”) is acquiring the screen rights to Steve Niles’ sci-fi horror comic “The Disciples”.
The story follows three bounty hunters who’ve been hired by a high ranking Senator to retrieve his teenage daughter who’s run off to join a mysterious and ultra-wealthy religious cult who are living on the moon of Ganymede. When they arrive there, they learn something has gone horribly wrong.
Iconic horror director Wes Craven will team with Niles on a TV series adaptation of the property which Black Mask Studios publishes in May. Craven will executive produce but is not writing or directing at this stage. Niles, Matt Pizzolo and Brett Gurewitz will also executive produce.
