At least the adaptations are changing genres. Getting away from anything 'superhero', Overture Films has acquired the Dark Horse graphic novel, Freaks of the Heartland, for David Gordon Green to direct.

Overture Films Gets Green for Freaks of the Heartland

Written by Steve Niles, Freaks of the Heartland, is a six-part series about the horrible secret of a rural Middle American town involves Trevor Owen's attempts to protect his "monster" of a 6-year-old younger brother and Gristlewood Valley's other "freaks" from their parents' worst instincts.

Freaks of the Heartland fits Overture's current trend of aggressively expanding their development of genre material. The production company is currently working on Pandorum and The Crazies, a reinvention of the 1973 horror film from George A. Romero.

Trying the cop genre, the studio's most recent opening, Righteous Kill, was a huge disappointment. Like the rest of us, Overture figured having De Niro and Pacino back in front of the camera together would be a shoe-in for strong box office numbers.
