Saperstein takes on ‘Snaked’

Producer options film rights to Meth series

Producer Richard Saperstein has optioned the film rights to Clifford Meth’s comicbook series “Snaked” from IDW Publishing, the company behind “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 Feb. 13.

Meth will pen the screenplay, and he will exec produce with IDW Publishing prexy and founder Ted Adams. Shara Kay will co-produce.

Deal is the second film pact for one of IDW’s properties in just weeks. Last week, it sold the film and TV rights to “Locke & Key” to Dimension. John Davis is producing.
