Dare Comics’ Hunter is coming to the big screen.

We reviewed the Hunter series from Dare Comics’ sometime ago on the podcast and really enjoyed the story. For me it felt like taking a ’24’ style thriller mixing in a load of superhero elements.

I just got this press release from the guys at Dare and their news that Hunter will be adapted for the big screen with an all new storyline.

I’m really happy for the guys and I wish them all the best with the film.

Check out the press release below for all the info.
