Framelight has announced it has acquired the rights the six-part comic book “Chi-Chian” to adapt the story for the big screen.

The fairy tale-tinged “Chi-Chian” is set in a dystopian New York — the city has lost its independence and become a prefecture of Japan — and centers on a seemingly ordinary young woman who has been tapped as a heroine and must fight samurais, robots and zombies to protect her loved ones.

The series is written by musician Aurello Voltaire.  No word on who will write the movie adaptation, but Jeffry Erb and Robert Robinson Jr. are set to produce.
