Producer Richard Saperstein has optioned the film rights to Clifford Meth's comicbook series Snaked from IDW Publishing. You may remember IDW as the company that was behind Columbia Pictures' adaptation of Steve Niles' '30 Days of Night'.
Based on an original story by Meth, "Snaked" is a horror-noir that follows the personal and political exploits of a government employee with supernatural, snakelike abilities.
"The political arena forms the perfect backdrop for Clifford Meth's heady mix of horror, sex and mayhem," said Saperstein, former prexy of production at Dimension Films, who has overseen pics including "1408," "Rob Zombie's Halloween" and "The Mist."
IDW released the first installment of "Snaked," whose publishers call it the most "controversial book" it's ever published, in December. The third book in the series was released on February 13th. Clifford Meth will be scribing the screenplay and will also be the exec producer on the flick along with IDW Publishing founder Ted Adams. Shara Kay will co-produce.
