Werewolf comic Welcome to Hoxford developing as film

Chris Columbus' 1492 Entertainment has picked up the film rights to IDW Publishing's horror graphic novel Welcome to Hoxford, Variety reported.

Ben Templesmith, who co-penned the vampire comic series 30 Days of Night, which Sony made into a film in 2007, created Hoxford, about a psychiatrist who must team with a deeply disturbed patient in order to escape werewolves who run an institution for the criminally insane.

Plans are for Columbus to produce the adaptation along with 1492 partners Michael Barnathan and Mark Radcliffe.

Templesmith is also behind the graphic novels Wormwood Gentleman Corpse and Singularity 7.
