Syfy To Work With Brad Peyton On The Woods
From Boom! Studios, the comic plunges the students and staff of a Wisconsin high school into a vast forest on the moon of an unknown planet. Faced with an unfamiliar, unforgiving environment, the characters are forced to adapt to their surroundings as they struggle to find some way to get back home:
In addition to directing, Peyton will executive produce alongside his producing partner, Jeff Fierson. Also executive producing are Armbruster and Boom!’s Ross Richie and Stephen Christy. Josh Levy from Boom! will co-executive produce. Universal Cable Productions, where the project was set up a year ago, is the studio.
“We’ve always seen this title as having the potential to be a stand-out sci-fi property, and there’s no better team to do that with than with Boom! and the teams at UCP/Syfy,” said Peyton and Fierson.
The Woods, currently on Issue 27 of a planned 36-issue run, is one of the longest-running series for Boom! The comic recently was named a 2016 Best Graphic Novel for Young Adults by YALSA.
This is Boom! Studios’ second collaboration with Peyton, who also is attached to direct their Malignant Man feature at 20th Century Fox, based on James Wan’s graphic novel.
