The Omen Helmer Handling Virulents


Irish filmmaker John Moore has been assigned to direct a big screen adaptation of Virgin Comics' "Virulents" set to be distributed by 20th Century Fox.

Previously directing war movie "Behind Enemy Lines" and horror flick "The Omen", John Moore is now mixing both genres into one in his newest film project.

Thatís right, the Irish filmmaker is about to make "Virulents" based on the Virgin Comics graphic novel about a ragtag group of soldiers who stumble into a nest of vampire zombies. The soldiers, some from an American military unit, some from an Indian military unit, are depicted to be in search for a lost patrol in Afghanistan when they cross path with the blood-thirsty creatures.

Adapting the material into a script is "Sgt. Rock" scribe John Cox while Virginís Gotham Chopra and Sharad Devarajan will both produce alongside Moore and Seth Jaret. Pic will be developed at New Regency with 20th Century Fox to distribute.

Virulents is "set in a part of the world that has a long history of myth and mystery, and it's going to rock," so said Chopra.
