This week was Jeff Lemire's week with the announcement that Black Hammer could be adapted to both film and television and the new announcement that Hulu has ordered a pilot based on his Vertigo series Sweet Tooth.
Sweet Tooth is the coming-of-age fable of Gus, a boy/deer hybrid who leaves home to find the world ravaged by a cataclysmic event. He joins a ragtag family of hybrids and humans searching to find answers behind the event...ultimately discovering a vast conspiracy that forces him to question his very existence.
The project will be written and directed by Jim Mickle, co-creator of the TV adaptation of Hap & Leonard. He'll also executive produce alongside Robert Downey Jr., Susan Downey, and Amanda Burrell.
