As the “outbreak” of Overture Films’ release of The Crazies draws closer, the studio is gearing up for an exciting launch of a comic book series inspired by the film along with various other multimedia content including a motion comic book series, Facebook “tower defense” game and more. The film is produced and distributed by Overture Films and co-financed by Participant Media.
The Top Cow printed comic book is broken into four chapters: Hopman Bog, Dwyer Creek, Black Pond and Ogden Marsh. The comic series traces an outbreak that takes over the minds and bodies of the citizens in Ogden Marsh, Iowa and each chapter focuses on a different aspect of this epidemic. The first two issues will be available in comic book stores nationwide on February 17, 2010, with the next two available February 24, 2010. Jeff Katz of American Original produced the comic book on behalf of Overture Films and Participant Media. The covers of the comic book are available for download at www.thecrazies-movie.com/comicbooks.
The Crazies is a highly anticipated remake of the George Romero classic and is scheduled to hit theaters on February 26, 2010. Breck Eisner directed the screenplay, written by Scott Kosar and Ray Wright, about the inhabitants of a small Kansas town beset by insanity and then death after a mysterious toxin contaminates their water supply.
The film stars Timothy Olyphant (Live Free or Die Hard) as the town’s sheriff, Radha Mitchell (Silent Hill) as his pregnant wife Judy who also doubles as the town doctor, Joe Anderson (Across the Universe) as the deputy sheriff and Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th) as a medical assistant. The film is produced by Michael Aguilar (Constantine, What Happens in Vegas), Dean Georgaris (The Manchurian Candidate) and Rob Cowan (Righteous Kill), with George Romero (Dawn of the Dead, Creepshow) executive producing.
