“Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke has come on board the Viking fantasy-adventure “Heathen” for Constantin Film and Prime Universe Films.
Hardwicke will direct from a script by Kerry Williamson, based on Vault Comic’s series by Natasha Alterici. She will also executive produce.
The stories center on the warrior Aydis, an outcast gay woman born into a time of warfare, suffering, and subjugation of women. She is on a mission to end the oppressive reign of the god-king Odin. The book was selected by the Young Adult Library Service Association to be included in its 2018 “Great Graphic Novels For Teens” list.
Constantin Film’s Robert Kulzer and Margo Klewans, Prime Universe Film’s Adrian Askarieh are producing along with F.J. DeSanto. Constantin Film’s Martin Moszkowicz and Vault CEO Damian Wassel will executive produce.
