Super cult comic Hack/Slash was slated for film adaptation so many moons ago but that fantasy never made it to the big screen-yet. However the dream of seeing the comic come to life in living gory glory is still very much alive. It is being reported now that the series is heading to the small screen thanks to Relativity Television, which has been spun off from Relativity Media. 'Hack/Slash' will be built as a dark and gritty series similar to 'The Walking Dead'.
Skip Wood of "Good Day To Die Hard" and "Swordfish" has been tagged to write the script. Created by Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli, Hack/Slash centers on Cassie Hack, a woman who symbolizes the cliche of the lone girl who survives at the end of every horror movie. However, the emotionally damaged girl not only survived but has become a killer of killers. Along with a burly protector named Vlad, Hack travels across the country hunting slashers in the vein of Halloween's Michael Myers, Friday the 13th's Jason Voorhees and A Nightmare on Elm Street's Freddy Krueger.
