The recent Image Comics series Gideon Fallsis in development as an hour-long television drama series by a new production company called Hivemind, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Gideon Falls comic book debuted back in March, and its creators Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino are on-board as executive producers.
"Gideon Falls is a story of madness and faith where rural mystery and urban horror collide in unexpected ways, all tied to the legend of the Black Barn," Lemire said. "This is certainly a much darker story than any of my previous work. And the horror and supernatural elements are clearly central to this darkness. I really wanted to create a compelling mystery and a compelling world, and the chance to explore horror with Andrea was very exciting to me. But there is more going on in Gideon Falls than meets the eye. As the story progresses, there will also be science-fiction elements layered in with the horror, creating, we think, something very unique. We had worked together a lot in the past, but never on a book like this, where we could create our own world and go as far as we want within it."
Gideon Falls is being development by a new company, Hivemind, made up of Bad Robot's former head of TV Kathy Lingg, former Valiant Entertainment CEO/CCO Dinesh Shamdasani, and the producing duo of Sean Daniel and Jason Brown.
"The lives of a reclusive young man obsessed with a conspiracy in the city’s trash, and a washed-up Catholic priest arriving in a small town full of dark secrets, become intertwined around the mysterious legend of The Black Barn, an otherworldly building that is alleged to have appeared in both the city and the small town, throughout history, bringing death and madness in its wake," reads Image's description of the series. "Rural mystery and urban horror collide in this character-driven meditation on obsession, mental illness, and faith."
