Image’s Infidel Optioned For Film

Image Comics’ new horror title Infidel written by Pornsak Pichetshote and illustrated by Aaron Campbell, Jose Villarrubia and Jeff Powell, has been optioned by TriStar Pictures, according to an exclusive report from the The Hollywood Reporter.

The “haunted-house story for the 21st century” follows an American Muslim woman and her multiracial neighbors whose building is haunted by creatures that feed on xenophobia. The report likens the combination of racial themes and horror to that of Academy Award-winner Get Out.

In a statement, TriStar Senior Vice President Nicole Brown said, “Audiences are responding to fresh, timely stories that, like Infidel, can resonate through the current state of our culture. Infidel has those provocative elements to create a touchstone thriller.”

“Every aspect of creating Infidel came from laying bare our very personal fears regarding the times we're in," Pichetshote and Campbell said about the option in a joint statement. "The fact that it's struck a chord at all, much less been subject to such competition to adapt it, is enormously flattering.”
