Take-Two Interactive’s comic publishing arm Double Take (a/k/a 2T) and Lionsgate have partnered for a film adaptation of Jeff McComsey’s Z-Men comic book.

Z-Men is set in Double Take’s shared universe of the classic horror franchise Night of the Living Dead (see “Double Take Launches 10 Titles in September“).  McComsey’s comic takes place in the aftermath events  of Night of the Living Dead, when LBJ orders the head of the Secret Service to send agents to investigate the disturbing zombie-related happenings (see “Double Take ‘Ultimate Night of the Living Dead’ Retailer Incentive“).  The series launched in September, and the second issue (pictured below) releases on November 14.

“We’re delighted to expand our relationship with our friends at Take-Two by partnering with their comic book arm, Double Take, in bringing Z-Men to the big screen,” said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairs Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger.  “We … look forward to translating 2T’s graphic novel into a spine-chilling film for moviegoers and comic book fans alike.”
