Donny Cates penned fantasy-action graphic novel "God Country" is being made into a movie by Legendary Entertainment.
The banner announced the deal on Tuesday, saying that it is teaming up with AfterShock Media on the project, reported variety.com.
AfterShock Media CEO Jon Kramer and President Lee Kramer are producing the project.
"God Country" was originally published in 2017 by Image Comics. The story centres on an elderly widower rattled by dementia. When a tornado levels his home as well as the surrounding West Texas town, he's restored and rises from the wreckage as an enchanted sword at the eye of the storm enables him to face the otherworldly creatures the sword has drawn.
The details of the cast and crew have not been revealed yet.
