Myriad draws up first pic from 407

Comic-based 'Hybrid' to shoot mid-2008

The recently formed partnership between Myriad Pictures and comicbook creators Studio 407 has yielded its first project. Myriad will make a live-action film based on the Studio 407 property “Hybrid.”

Story revolves around vacationing college students who come across what appears to be an abandoned trawler while on a sailing trip. They soon discover it is the nest of a mutant creature, born of environmental abuse, who “fishes” for humans in the open water. Project is out to directors.

Peter Kwong, who penned the comicbook — which publishes in June — will write the screenplay.

Myriad is eyeing a mid-2008 start date. Film will be shot in Southeast Asia off the coast of Thailand.

Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico and Studio 407’s Alex Leung are producing.

“We’re excited about the new project and feel it has the marketing potential and appeal to be a great horror franchise,” D’Amico said.

Financing, production and worldwide sales outfit Myriad’s upcoming projects include Dario Argento’s “The Mother of Tears” and Gillian Armstrong’s “Death Defying Acts,” starring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Guy Pearce.
