Davis Entertainment has acquired the rights to BOOM! Studios' comic book series North Wind , it was announced today by John Davis and BOOM! Studios' co founders, Andrew Cosby and Ross Richie.  Davis, along with Cosby and Richie via the Boom Entertainment banner, will produce the feature.
 
The North Wind comic book series is a post-Apocalyptic action story in the vein of Mad Max. Series creator David DiGilio (Eight Below and the ABC series Traveler ) will adapt his own comic book into screenplay form and also serve as executive producer.  The storyline is set in the future, where global warming creates a new ice age.   The last remnants of society live ruled by a despot in downtown Los Angeles under the ice, while a scattered few survivors are exiled to the inhospitable surface.  One of these survivors rises up to lead a revolt to overthrow their oppressor.
 
BOOM! Studios co-founders Cosby and Richie have been experiencing a "boom" in Hollywood lately. The pair is producing adaptations of their Tag and Talent comics at Universal with Marc Platt, while The Foundation was snapped up by Paramount Pictures in a pre-emptive bid. Ice Cube's CubeVision is adapting the BOOM! Studios graphic novel 10 for Dimension Films. The film will be one of many sci-fi spectacles for Davis Entertainment, which helped bring I, Robot, Alien vs. Predator and Eragon to the screen.
 
DiGilio is repped by UTA and manager Stephen Crawford. Cosby and Richie are repped by Paradigm and managers Peter Adam Golden and Farley Ziegler of Golden Entertainment West.
 
The North Wind comic series has been launched as part of a historic simultaneous release this year arriving in stores and available as free digital downloads at MySpace Comic Books.
