Wes Craven

Wes Craven (Scream, A Nightmare On Elm Street) and Steve Niles (co-creator of 30 Days of Night) are working on a TV adaptation of Niles’ latest comic called “The Disciples”. It is described as a sci-fi horror story set in space!

The Disciples is poised to become one of the spring’s most anticipated comics titles and should transform into a transfixing TV series under the guidance of Wes Craven. The Disciples comic will be out in May 2015 and Craven will be one of its executive producers!!

Here’s the official synopsis from Black Mask Studios:

Dagmar, Rick and Jules, intrepid private eyes/bounty hunters, have been hired by a high-ranking Senator to retrieve his teenage daughter who’s run off to join a mysterious religious cult. This is no ordinary cult though. In the near future of The Disciples, the ultra-wealthy have become the true Masters of the Universe by colonizing moons throughout the solar system. Billionaire industrialist McCauley Richmond is one such colonist: he’s built a new society on Ganymede, a moon of Jupiter, where his flock of cultists can have the religious freedom to worship him. But when the team reaches Ganymede in their Starship Venture, they discover something has gone horribly wrong!
