Legendary Entertainment Acquires Aftershock Comic ‘Animosity’ For Feature Film

Legendary Entertainment has acquired the worldwide film rights to the hit Aftershock Comics story “Animosity”. “Animosity” is a tale about a world in which all animals can suddenly talk and think with human-like processes. It follows an eleven year old girl named Jesse and her hound dog Sandor.

“Animosity” was created by the prolific Margueritte Bennett with art by Rafael de Latorre. It has spawned two spin-off mini-series also under the Aftershock label.

Lee Kramer and Jon Kramer of Aftershock Media will produce the feature with oversight by Legendary’s Jon Silk.

This story has a lot of potential for film exploration and continues to be one of the best books from Aftershock and Ms. Bennett.
