Seth Rogen and his producing partner Evan Goldberg have signed on to produce another comic book adaptation, the duo teaming with Lionsgate for a movie based upon the Boom! Studios horror-thriller series Memetic from writer James Tynion IV (Batman) and artist Eryk Donovan.
Memetic is being written by Mattson Tomlin (The Batman) and revolves around The Good Time Sloth, a weaponized meme which becomes a viral sensation with the unfortunate side effect of sending people into a murderous rage. As society crumbles, a colour-blind young man who is immune to the meme sets out to find his boyfriend.
The Memetic news follows the announcement last week that Rogen and Goldberg’s Point Grey and writer Tomlin are teaming on a TV adaptation of Rick Remender and Tony Moore’s Fear Agent. Rogen and Goldberg have previously had success bringing the acclaimed comic books Preacher and The Boys to the small screen for AMC and Amazon respectively.
