Vault Comics' HEATHEN Film Adaptation Now In The Works

Writer Kerry Williamson (Alex Cross) did a great job packaging what Netflix consumers got with Tommy Wirkola's harrowing sci-fi, What Happened To Monday, a fact that makes me all the more excited that she's now penning an adaptation of the Natasha Alterici's Vault Comics publication, Heathen.

Mike Fleming Jr. broke the news at Deadline last Thursday telling of efforts from Constantin Film and Prime Universe to take on the female-centric viking warrioress adventure centered on, Aydis - an outcast born in a time of war and tumult, sets out to end the god-king Odin's reign and free oppressed women from their shackles.

The news comes just as the sell-out hit comic's second volume is set to release in July. According to Deadline, Heathen was recently selected by Young Adult Library Service Association to be included in its 2018 Great Graphic Novels For Teens list.
Said Alterici: “The entire Heathen  team and I are incredibly excited about adapting my little lesbian viking comic for film, especially with a kindred spirit like Kerry writing it. I’ve been a film fanatic for longer than I’ve been a comics fans, and that my working in one format would lead to another is nothing less than a dream come true.”
F.J. DeSanto will produce alongside the pairing of Constantin Film and Prime Universe, with Martin Moszkowicz executive producing for Constantin alongside Vault CEO and publisher Damian Wassel. Constantin's Kulzer and Margo Klewans are overseeing development.

Williamson is also set to adapt Sandman Slim, one of Studio 8's latest acquisitions with Chad Stahelski set to direct.
