Breath Of Bones Locks Up Narnia Director

breath_of_bones_coverThe Dark Horse Comics series Breath of Bones by Steve Niles, Matt Santoro and Dave Wachter has gotten a film director. THR is reporting that Andrew Adamson (The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe) will lead an adaptation of the three-issue comic series.

Bones is set during World War II and tells of a British plane that crashes into a Jewish village. The crash brings Nazi attention, forcing the villagers to defend themselves, with one rabbi and his grandson building a Golem creature and bringing him to monstrous life.

"Telling a story can be tough," Niles told THR. "It's the one monster rooted in religion and mysticism, so I wanted to be respectful. I decided to tell it as a World War II fable. It's a story of a grandfather teaching his grandson how to make a monster to defend his village against a Nazi invasion."

Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg of Dark Horse are producing the adaptation with Adamson and his producing partner Aron Warner
