Hack/Slash Being Developed into a TV Series. Relativity Media has been working on a film based on the cult horror comic book Hack/Slash, but a new report revealed that it is now being made into a television series. There haven’t been any announcements on where it will air yet.
It’s been a few years since Hack/Slash was announced to be a movie. That was until a recent report from The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that the cult horror comic will instead be made for the small screen. There hasn’t been any news on the cast and a director yet, but the potential series will be produced by Adrian Askarieh and Ray Ricord from Relativity’s television division with Hitman’s Skip Woods in charge of writing the screenplay.
Apparently, the plan is to adapt the comic book into a ‘gritty show in The Walking Dead mold’. Created by Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli in 2004, the original comic book series centered on Cassie Hack, a woman who is the embodiment of every lone girl who survives every horror movie. However, not only does this emotionally damaged girl survived but she also becomes a killer of killers. Teaming up with a strong guardian named Vlad, Hack travels across the country hunting down slashers similar to Halloween’s Michael Myers, Friday the 13th’s Jason Voorhees, and A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger.
