‘Purge’ Filmmaker To Bring ‘Resonant’ Comic To BET

by Thomas Tuna

This is a future we would be wise to avoid.

Resonant–a post-apocalyptic title from Vault Comics–is coming to the small screen, thanks to a horror filmmaker, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Gerard McMurray–director of 2018’s The First Purge–has signed on to write, direct and act as executive producer for a BET+ adaptation of the comic book from CBS Studios and Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions. There has been no word about production schedules, casting choices or a release widow at this early stage.

Resonant–from writer David Andry and artists Alejandro Aragon and Skylar Patridge–is set a decade after an event known as The Wave hits, “unleashing humanity’s most violent impulses and plunging the world into chaos,” according to the description.

The storyline follows a single father of three “who must venture from the secluded haven he built in order to restock the medicine his chronically ill son needs. When the routine trip goes awry, the man and his children–now separated–battle everything to reunite.”

The family must confront “not only the horrors of the new world order, but their doubts about one another and the darkest corners of their own hearts.”
