Tim Seeley's HACK/SLASH is getting an animated adaptation, and the creator is announcing its star in San Diego.
Taking the stage at Halo-8's Saturday night Comic-Con panel in Room 9, Seeley and director Matt Pizzolo will announce "Cassie Hack-tress," the mysterious lady taking on the role of one of comics' most badass heroines. The actress is reportedly on hand at SDCC for a separate genre series she's a part of.
Currently underway, the HACK/SLASH illustrated film will mix comic book sequential art with 3D CGI and rotoscoped animation of live-action performances. "Cassie is a great role and there are a lot of established actresses who'd love to bring her to life. We feel really blessed by the actress we've selected to take on the role--not only is she a fan-favorite but she herself is a fan of Tim, Cassie, and Vlad," Pizzolo said. "With HACK/SLASH, we're working more with green screen and roto-style animation, so this actress will literally be taking on Cassie's skin." HACK/SLASH sees ultimate final girl Cassie Hack and her beast of a partner, Vlad take on a wealth of slashers around the world.
Additionally, Dark Horse Comics announced today that Seeley will write THE OCCULTIST. Based on the popular one-shot from last year, created by Dark Horse's Mike Richardson, here's the official synopsis: "When a mysterious book of powerful spells binds itself to him, the fact that Rob’s life has been falling apart doesn’t seem like such a big deal. What do his girlfriend leaving him or his mountain of debt matter when mystics and demons are overrunning the town in search of the book—and him? To survive, Rob must learn to control the book’s unpredictable magic, while his life slips even further out of control . . ."
"Now, while harnessing his new powers as the Occultist, college student Rob Bailey must defend himself and those around him from a series of hired hit mages with unique magical abilities and a serpentine demon known as the Swordbreaker, all determined to kill him and to possess the powerful spell book known as the Sword!"
THE OCCULTIST hits November 9.
