Legendary has acquired the worldwide film rights to the acclaimed comic book series Animosity, written by Marguerite Bennett (DC Comics: Bombshells, Angela: Asgard’s Assassin) and illustrated by Rafael de Latorre.
In Animosity, the world is plunged into chaos once day 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.
