Johnny Depp to Co-Produce The Vault Comic Book Adaptation
08.05.11 by BJSprecher
The rights to The Vault, a new three-issue mini-series published by Image Comics, have been picked up Graham King's GK Films before the second issue of the series has even hit the stands. Of course, that's not too surprising when you consider that the writer of the series, Sam Sarkar, is an exectuive at Johnny Depp's Infinitum Nihil production company, which is partnering with GK to develop the movie adaptation of the mini-series. Depp and Christi Dembrowski, president of Nihil, will co-produce alongside King and Tim Headington of GK.
Here's the synopsis of The Vault mini-series:
A small team of treasure hunters struggles to excavate a dangerous and legendary treasure pit before a massive storm hits Sable Island, the 'Graveyard of the North Atlantic'. Equipped with all the latest technology, the scientists believe they are prepared against all of nature's fury, but nothing can prepare them for what they are about to unleash from The Vault.
