Lycans writers hired to breathe life into Zombies of Mass Destruction

Dirk Blackman and Howard McCain have been hired to adapt the Red 5 comic ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction for Benderspink, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The comic, created by Kevin Grevioux (Underworld), follows an elite team of soldiers sent on a covert operation into hostile territory in the Middle East to stop what they soon discover to be a government-created army of the undead. Benderspink's Jake Weiner and Josh Feldman are overseeing the project.

Benderspink continues to mine the comic world for material; it has Y: The Last Man in development at New Line, Pet Robots at Disney and The Ghouly Boys at Mandate.

Blackman and McCain co-wrote the recently released Underworld: Rise of the Lycans and wrote and directed Outlander.
