Adler, McCarthy engulfed in WWII ‘Fog’

Producers option sci-fi horror comicbook 'Night and Fog'

Producers Gil Adler and Shane McCarthy have optioned the sci-fi horror comicbook “Night and Fog” from publisher Studio 407.

No stranger to comicbook-based material, Adler has produced such graphic-based fare as “Constantine,” “Superman Returns” and the upcoming Brandon Routh starrer “Dead of Night,” which is based on the popular Italian title “Dylan Dog.”

This material is definitely in my strike zone in more ways than one,” Adler said, noting his prior role as a producer of such horror projects as the “Tales From the Crypt” series. “But what really appealed to me wasn’t so much the genre trappings but rather the characters that really drive this story.”

Set during WWII, story revolves around an infectious mist unleashed on a military base that transforms its victims into preternatural creatures of the night. But when the survivors try to kill them, they adapt and change into something even more horrific and unstoppable.

Studio 407’s Alex Leung will also serve as a producer on “Night and Fog.”

Adler and McCarthy are also teaming to produce an adaptation of “Havana Nocturne” along with Eric Eisner. They also recently optioned Ken Bruen’s crime thriller “Tower.” “Night and Fog” is available in comic shops in the single-issue format and digitally on iPhone through Comixology. It will hit stores in a trade format in the spring.
