Last Updated on July 22, 2021

The unusual Dark Horse comic BREATH OF BONES is ready for its cinematic closeup. The Hollywood Reporter has broken the news that Andrew Adamson (SHREK, THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA) will direct the film adaptation of the book, Breath of Bones: A Tale of the Golem, which was written by Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) and Matt Santoro.

“Breath of Bones: A Tale of the Golem” has this amazing synopsis:

The giant clay monster from Jewish legend goes on a Nazi-killing rampage in order to protect the inhabitants of a small Jewish stronghold and an injured British pilot.

Yes, I think I can get behind that.

Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg of Dark Horse are producing the adaptation with Adamson. No word on when production is expected to begin.
