God Country Optioned For Major Motion Picture By Aftershock And Legendary

Donny Cates will write the script.

Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw's God Country has been optioned by Aftershock Media and Legendary Entertainment as a major motion picture. This will be the second time both companies have collaborated and the first time Aftershock will develop a property not published by itself, as God Country was originally published by Image Comics in 2017 as a six issue mini-series.

God Country is a fantasy series in which an elderly widower in Texas finds himself restored to health — and cured of dementia — after discovering an enchanted sword in the eye of a tornado. His revival comes with a cost, however; he has been transformed into the only man who can face a number of otherworldly creatures summoned to Texas by the sword's arrival.

Cates will write the script for the movie, presumably based on the first draft of the comic, which likely started as a screenplay anyway.
