James Wan and Atomic Monster Join ‘Gideon Falls’

Hivemind recently issued a press release which announced that they will be teaming with James Wan and his Atomic Monster production company for the upcoming television adaptation of Gideon Falls. Created by Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino, Gideon Falls recently picked up a 2019 Eisner Award for Best New Series.

Published by Image Comics, the official synopsis for the series is as follows:
The lives of a reclusive young man obsessed with a conspiracy in the city’s trash, and a washed-up Catholic priest arriving in a small town full of dark secrets, become intertwined around the mysterious legend of The Black Barn, an otherworldly building that is alleged to have appeared in both the city and the small town, throughout history, bringing death and madness in its wake. Rural mystery and urban horror collide in this character-driven meditation on obsession, mental illness, and faith.

“We are very excited about James Wan and Atomic Monster joining the Gideon Falls team,” said series co-creators Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino. “James’ creative vision will be a wonderful fit for the world of Gideon Falls and to help adapt the series to television in a truly unique and exciting way.”

“To have a filmmaker of James Wan’s caliber, talent, and vision contributing to the atmospheric and terrifying world that Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino have created with Gideon Falls is nothing short of incredible,” said Hivemind co-founders Kathy Lingg, Dinesh Shamdasani, and Jason Brown. “This is a high-powered and formidable combination for one of the most acclaimed comic series of the decade, and James and his colleagues at Atomic Monster – Michael Clear and Rob Hackett – are the perfect partners to help bring our adaptation to life. Fans of Gideon Falls, rest assured: We have some incredible surprises yet in store.”
