Rogue enlisting in ‘Squad’

Kirby comic aims for bigscreen

Rogue Pictures has joined the “Lost Squad,” buying the feature rights to Chris Kirby’s comicbook series and setting it up with producers Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter.

“Lost Squad” chronicles the adventures of a ragtag unit of Allied soldiers who fight Hitler’s occult agents and other supernatural threats during WWII.

Devil’s Due Publishing began the series — illustrated by Alan Robinson — last fall and has published five issues. Devil’s Due publisher Josh Blaylock is co-producing “Lost Squad.”

Project is the second Askarieh and Alter have in development at Rogue, the genre arm of Universal-based Focus Features. Earlier this year, the duo set up “Hack/Slash,” based on a Devil’s Due comic about a woman who hunts down slashers; writer-director Todd Lincoln is attached.

The producers also are developing a feature at Fox based on the vidgame “Hitman,” with Vin Diesel attached.
