Lionsgate Buying Graphic Horror Novel ‘Memetic’ For ‘The Batman’ Co-Writer Mattson Tomlin To Script; Point Grey & Boom! Studios Producing

Lionsgate has landed the feature spec Memetic from Mattson Tomlin, who co-wrote The Batman script with director Matt Reeves. Based on the Boom! Studios graphic novel of the same name by James Tynion IV and Eryk Donovan, the project was brought to Lionsgate by Point Grey’s Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver and Josh Fagen through their deal with the studio. That trio will produce with Boom! Studios’ Ross Richie and Stephen Christy. Fagen and Adam Yoelin will be exec producers.

In Memetic, all hell breaks loose when a mysterious meme goes viral on a college campus, making anyone who sees it turn obsessive and violent. As the meme spreads and grows out of control, a ragtag group of students must risk everything in order to survive the viral outbreak and try to stop it.

Point Grey is coming off of the success of Good Boys, which grossed $110 million
