Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Ross Richie and Stephen Christy are set to produce “Memetic,” a horror-thriller feature which has been setup at Lionsgate and is based on the Boom! Studios comic by James Tynion IV.
The comic explores the idea of a weaponized meme, a meme named ‘Good Time Sloth’ which becomes a viral sensation. A half-day later, everyone who saw it from the President to the coffee shop barista become ‘screamers’ – succumbing to a murderous rage.
Some prove to be immune to the meme and the story centers on a young man, color-blind, who tries to navigate society’s fall into an apocalypse as he tried to find his boyfriend.
“The Batman” co-writer Mattson Tomlin is writing the adaptation.
