David A. Armstrong boards adaptation of comic book

David A. Armstrong, cinematographer for the “Saw” franchise, is attached to direct a live-action adaptation of comic book series “Crawl to Me” for the big screen.

Project’s produced “Crawl” author Alan Robert, Jeff Mazzola and Chris White. The producers are seeking a writer to adapt “Crawl.”

The recently published IDW comic, which takes place in an isolated country town during the frigid winter months, centers on a young family as they cope with a series of disturbing events that force them to question their relationship, their faith and their very existence.

Armstrong’s currently directing the indie hostage drama “Pawn,” starring Michael Chiklis and Forest Whitaker.

IDW announced Tuesday that the first printing of “Crawl to Me” has sold out within a week of its release and said that as a result, it’s scheduling a second pressing.

Armstrong is repped by Original Artists.
