Keith Arem is set to write and direct Frost Road; he's also developing it as a graphic novel with Brandon Humphreys (Christopher Shy is illustrating). Arem currently has a hit video game on his hands. He directed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
So, what's the story of Frost Road that deserves to be told in two mediums? Variety says it's about a young man gathering survivors and attempting to hold off a contagion that has hit an East Coast town.
Avenue Pictures and Solipsist Films are producing.
Arem tells Variety: "There's an incredible talent pool currently working in the game industry, and I hope that the success of Frost Road will give other creators the chance to show what they can do on a wider canvas."
