Archaia’s Feeding Ground Heading Toward Big Screen

Edward R. Pressman, veteran producer of The Crow, Wall Street and American Psycho, has picked up the rights to Archaia Entertainment’s horror comic Feeding Ground.

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, who served as second-unit director on such films as Casino, State of Play and The Eagle, will helm the adaptation, based on a script by Carlos Coto (Nikita, Heroes).

Created by Swifty Lang, Michael Lapinski and Chris Mangun, Feeding Ground follows Diego Busqueda, a “coyote” who smuggles people across the U.S.-Mexico border. When he’s forced to lead his own family across the brutal stretch of desert known as “The Devil’s Highway,” they’re caught between cartel members and U.S. Border Patrol agents, only to realize their party is being hunted by werewolves.

Feeding Ground is an intense and terrifying thriller with a subtle but pointed commentary on immigration in modern America,” Pressman said in a statement. “The graphic novel is so cinematic in nature — as soon as I read it, I knew we could make a film that would resonate with a wide audience. Alfonso and Carlos are the perfect talents to bring this vision to the big screen.”
