SDCC 2015 – ‘Roche Limit’ Being Optioned for Movie

Michael Moreci’s 2014 mini-series Roche Limit (published by Image Comics) has been optioned for a film.

Heavy Metal has obtained the rights.

Roche Limit debuted in September 2014 as a 5-issue mini-series. There are two more 5-issue mini-series to follow. The second installment, #1 of which was released in May, is called Roche Limit: Clandestiny.

The series is a sci-fi/noir concept, following the disappearance of Bekkah Hudson, on the colonized plant of Roche Limit. Her sister decides to investigate and winds up in the tangles of a crime ridden society.

Seth Sherwood, writer of Leatherface, is set to write the screenplay.

Personally, I loved the concept and stylization of Roche Limit. I am interested to see what a movie would look like because the art was so good. I look forward to delivering more news on this project.
