Channing Tatum is producing the live-action film adaptation of “Zombie Brother,” which is based on a series of digital comics and anime shorts from Tencent. The plot for the film is still under wraps, but the Chinese comic series involves a young man trying to escape from a city with his girlfriend after a virus outbreak. Alex Rubens wrote the screenplay with contributions by Ryan Engle.
Since 2011, the digital comic book has earned more than 24 billion views over 241 episodes, and its animated series has attracted more than 3.7 billion views across its first two seasons. The franchise has also been adapted into a stage play, which had a record-breaking run of sold-out shows across the region.
