Benderspink Productions has grabbed the film rights to another comic book series called Drafted, a sci-fi feature that deals with an alien invasion. Published by the company Devil’s Due, co-creators Mark Powers and Chris Lie will produce the film.

According to Deadline, American film producer J.C. Spink will produce Drafted through his established company Benderspink Productions. Mark Powers’ comic series, which was drawn by artist Chris Lie, Drafted is about an alien invasion that has mankind drafted into an intergalactic war with the help of another alien species known as the Benefactors.

“I’ve loved this property for seven years now,” JC Spink told Deadline, “and am so glad to be able to help make something happen for it in film.”

Drafted was launched in 2007 as a preview issue before being published with 12 issues. Along with the film’s production, Powers will also be relaunching the comic series starting in 2015 along with new issues.

The comic was slated to become a film from New Line Studios back in 2010, but no news was given on production ever since.
