SDCC 2010: Circle of Confusion to Adapt Layman and Guillory’s Chew!


Circle of Confusion, which is working on AMC’s adaptation of The Walking Dead, is putting together a TV series proposal based on the Image Comics series, Chew.

Written and co-created by John Layman, with artwork by Rob Guillory Chew centers on Tony Chu, a police detective who is a “cibopath”, who detects psychic impressions from whatever he eats. Chu is appointed to the FDA, which - because of the illegalization of chicken, due to the death of over a hundred million people worldwide being allegedly due to a strain of bird flu - has now become the most powerful law-enforcement branch of the United States government.

Stephen Hopkins has come on board to direct and executive produce the project, which is in the process of locking in a writer.

“There are a lot of superhero comic books but there are not many food comic books,” Layman said. “Food turned out to be a very universal theme embraced by readers.”
