"Feeding Ground"

Producer Edward R. Pressman ("Wall Street") has optioned screen rights to the Archaia Studio Press 6-issue graphic novel series "Feeding Ground" by Swifty Lang, Michael Lapinski and Chris Mangun:

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon is attached to direct from a screenplay adaptation by Carlos Coto :

" 'Feeding Ground', a trafficker of illegal immigrants, known as a 'coyote', is forced to smuggle his family into America by crossing the most forbidding part of the Arizona/Mexico border, a searing no-man's land called "The Devil's Highway." Along the way, he and his family clash with US Border Patrol agents, only to realize that the entire party is being hunted by the real monsters that roam the countryside...'werewolves'..."

"Feeding Ground is an intense and terrifying thriller," said Pressman, "with a subtle but pointed commentary on immigration in modern America."
