Well, if you are sick of horror movies, and not a big fan of comic books, then Rogue Pictures latest is not going to be for you. The horror studio is currently developing the film version of Tim Seeley's graphic novel Hack/Slash with Todd Lincoln on board to direct.

The series follows Cassie Hack and her partner Vlad, who are freelance bounty hunters of supernaturally powered serial killers, or, in the parlance of the book "Slashers". And, in a twist of movie-style marketing, an upcoming edition of the comic will feature our heroes doing battle with the one and only Chucky. Lincoln spoke with Movies Online about the film and promised, "a sprinkling of humor to balance the scares, but this will be a lean, vicious, blood-soaked, Hard-R fright fest. The goal is to create the ultimate slasher film". Lincoln is currently working on a re-write of The Fly, and no casting announcements have been made, so it could be a while before we see a finished product.

So if you are a fan of comic books, and you just can't get enough of horror movies, then keep your fingers crossed that we get a look at Hack/Slash sometime soon.
