SAW Cinematographer David Armstrong Will Direct An Adaption Of IDW’s CRAWL TO ME
IDW moved forward with the film announcement after the comic, created by Alan Robert, sold out only a week after its release. IDW was able to capture a reaction from Mr. Robert along with IDW’s Chief Creative Officer / Editor-in-Chief for IDW Publishing, released with the press release:
“The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of excitement, to say the least,” says creator, Robert. “Crawl to Me has already exceeded all of my expectations. Creating comics has been a life-long passion of mine and I’m extremely grateful to be given the chance to tell my crazy stories. To see them come to life on film is a whole other level of awesomeness. I love horror movies, especially the ones with shocking twist endings like The Sixth Sense and The Others, so it’s my goal to create that same type of jaw-dropping impact with Crawl to Me.”
“I knew Alan Robert had juice with his Wire Hangers series, and Crawl to Me is even more of a singular creator’s vision come to life,” said Chris Ryall, Chief Creative Officer / Editor-in-Chief for IDW Publishing. “To then see that graphic novel get voted Best Mini-Series of the Year by horror fans at ComicMonsters.com and now sell out its initial press run is very gratifying and appreciated. Even more, it speaks to the market for more unique comics amidst a world of superhero relaunches and big licensed comics.”
