If you needed someone to show you how to hunt, fight, and then survive your encounters with monsters, I guess Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wouldn’t be such a bad teacher. The wrestler-turned-actor-turned-wrestler has been attached to a live-action adaptation of the comic book “The Monster Hunters Survival Guide” by John Paul Russ.
The mini-series comic book published by Zenescope is one of those tongue-in-cheek “manual” type creations:
Monsters surround us. They’re everywhere; on TV, in movies… they haunt our nightmares. But are they real? Do Vampires, Werewolves, and Zombies really exist? And if so, how can we survive against them? At last here is the comprehensive guide every Monster Hunter must have! Whether you’re a weekend Bigfoot hunter or a hardcore Vampire slayer you simply can’t afford not to own this book. The Monster Hunters Survival Guide will not only instruct you on how to be the first to catch one of these mysterious Cryptids – but it’s the only way you’ll be able to survive the experience!
I suspect the movie will take a more traditional approach, possibly with The Rock showing up and dispatching monsters and getting the girl and all that good stuff.
Simon Kinberg (“X-Men: First Class”) will produce.
