The Hollywood Reporter just dropped the news that producer Jeff Krelitz and his Quality Transmedia banner have optioned the screen rights to HOAX HUNTERS, a comic from Image Comics, with the intent of bringing it to the big screen as a feature length film.
The book, created by Michael Moreci and Steve Seeley (the brother of Hack/Slash creator Tim Seeley), centers around...
“a group of paranormal investigators who debunk mysteries for a TV show called Hoax Hunters. But in reality, the hunters are working hard to cover up and keep the world’s dark forces secret.”
Krelitz is seeking writers, with a plan to get a script written and then get the project set up.
I'm not familiar with the source material but judging from the synopsis HOAX HUNTERS sounds like it could be a lot of fun. Hopefully we'll be hearing more about this project soon.
