The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Heavy Metal will adapt the Image Comics Roche Limit for the big screen.

Heavy Metal, the media company, not the 2000 AD title of the same name, headed by Jeff Krelitz, David Boxenbaum, and Brian Witten are developing the project with Roche Limit creator Michael Moreci. Seth Sherwood will write the adaptation of the mystery in space series, that has been reviewed very favorably on this site.

The comic was initially a five-issue story published in 2014. Moreci, who is also the creator of comic Hoax Hunters, that Heavy Metal is also developing as an adaptation, is in the middle of a second five-issue story arc titled Roche Limit: Clandestiny that keeps the setting but sets the story in a different time period and even subgenre with a new art team. Moreci has plans for a third storyline to complete a trilogy.

Now we just need to wait for this project to move forward before the lens so we can get really psyched about seeing it in the theater.
