Scarlet Fire Adapting Adam Hamdy's Comic Book The Hunter

Another new comic book adaptation in the works. THR announces that Scarlet Fire Entertainment will produce a feature adaptation of Dare Comics' series The Hunter. Written by Adam Hamdy, The Hunter is about a CIA agent named Gabriel Mot with extraordinary powers. He's tasked with finding those responsible for coordinated attacks on America, and reveals a hidden world of dark beings with tremendous destructive powers. "In a world where monsters walk the Earth, nothing is what it seems." Sounds a bit like the B.P.R.D. or something Guillermo del Toro should direct. Hamdy will create an original Hunter story for the movie.
"We're extremely pleased to be working with Scarlet Fire," said Hamdy, who founded Dare Comics. "They understood The Hunter immediately, and saw in it the potential to create a compelling new universe that loyal fans and newcomers alike will love seeing come to life on the big screen." Scarlet Fire's Steven Pearl and Allan Loeb, the co-writer of 21 and Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps, will produce along with Hamdy. "He's succeeded in building a new superhero brand virtually single-handed in a market that is dominated by big companies with very deep pockets," Pearl said.
