"Twilight" and "Miss Bala" director Catherine Hardwicke has just signed a deal to bring Vault Comic’s best-selling comic book series "Heathen" to the big screen, Constantin Film and Prime Universe Films announced today.
Written and drawn by Natasha Alterici, "Heathen” follows Aydis, a young female Viking, a warrior, an outcast, and a self-proclaimed “heathen.” She is on a mission to end the oppressive reign of the God-king Odin.
The comic’s first trade paperback sold out in a week and is now in a second printing. Heathen #7 just came out.
Kerry Williamson (whose credits include "Alex Cross" and "What Happened to Monday") has signed on to write the script.
