Disney plans to make ‘Monster’ film

Studio nabs graphic novel for Netter to produce

The Mouse is planning to battle the beasties.

Disney has picked up the film rights to graphic novel “Monster Attack Network” from publisher AIT and Planet Lar for Jason Netter (“Wanted”) to produce.

Book, penned by Marc Bernardin and Adam Freeman with art from Nima Sorat, takes place on a South Pacific island where a team of first-responders rescue residents who are regularly attacked by giant monsters who emerge from the sea.

Netter’s Kickstart Entertainment will produce the project. Shingle is also producing Sci Fi Channel’s upcoming series “Painkiller Jane” and has adaptations of several other comicbook properties in the works, including “The Boys” at Columbia Pictures with Neal H. Moritz.

Negotiations to pick up “Monster Attack Network” began before the writers strike, the book’s creators said.

Bernardin and Freeman are penning a prequel comicbook series for DC Comics imprint Wildstorm based on “Push,” the actioner that Summit Entertainment will release next year.
