Writer Marguerite Bennet and artists Rafael de Latorre's AfterShock comic book Animosity has been optioned for film by Legendary Entertainment.
Animosity tells the story of a world where animals become sentient and gain the ability to speak.
Here's the official log line:
"In ANIMOSITY, one day the world is plunged into chaos when animals suddenly wake up. They start thinking. They start talking. They start taking revenge. In the midst of the turmoil is Jesse, an 11-year-old girl, and her devoted dog, Sandor. One year after the incident, Jesse and Sandor begin a cross-country journey from New York to San Francisco, to find the only person who might be able to protect and save them."
AfterShock Media's Lee Kramer and Jon Kramer along with Legendary's Jon Silk are signed on to produce the film, which has not been given a projected release date.
