Coalition Group has partnered with Wasted Talent
Entertainment (Crawl to Me) to
produce the Jack Reher (Grizzly,
Corrosion) penned screenplay, based on Alan Robert’s forthcoming IDW
comic series The Shunned One.
Robert, along with his producing partners Chris White (V/H/S Viral) and Jeff
Mazzola (Descent) round out
Wasted Talent Entertainment. Glenn Allen, co-founder of Emmy-winning Brainstorm
Digital (The Wolf of Wall Street,
Boardwalk Empire) is also on board as VFX Supervisor.
The Shunned One focuses on an angel of death who goes
rogue after refusing to take innocent human lives. The angel’s unsanctioned actions
alter balance in the universe and he is forced to hide amongst the humans while
being hunted by a pack of vengeful death angels.
An exclusive first-look
Shunned One comic will hit stands this Halloween inside the
back pages of Robert’s other title Killogy (IDW). IDW Publishing expects to launch The Shunned One comic series in early 2015. The books are
written and illustrated by Robert, with cover paintings by acclaimed comics
artist Francesco Mattina.
