The Woods - Sci-Fi Drama Based on Graphic Novel In Development at Syfy

Syfy has put in development The Woods, an hourlong sci-fi drama based on Boom! Studios’ flagship graphic novel series, with San Andreas helmer Brad Peyton producing and set to direct.

Written by Michael Armbruster based on the comic by James Tynion IV and illustrator Michael Dialynas, the thriller is a co-production between Boom! Studios and Peyton’s ASAP Entertainment. It is set in Wisconsin where an entire high-school campus — including the 300 students, teachers, parents and workers who happened to be there at the time – vanishes without a trace and reappears in the middle of the thick woods on the moon of a distant planet. Now their normal lives have suddenly and dramatically changed as they must survive the eerie and dangerous environment while desperately trying to find a way to get back home.

In addition to directing, Peyton will executive produce alongside his producing partner, Jeff Fierson. Also executive producing are Armbruster and Boom’s Ross Richie and Stephen Christy. Josh Levy from Boom will co-executive produce. Universal Cable Productions, where the project was set up a year ago, is the studio.

“We’ve always seen this title as having the potential to be a stand-out sci-fi property and there’s no better team to do that with than with BOOM! and the teams at UCP/Syfy,” said Peyton and Fierson.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.
