'Hack/Slash' finds director

Fredrik Bond joins Rogue's horror comic book adaptation

Commercial director Fredrik Bond has come aboard to direct "Hack/Slash," Rogue's adaptation of a cult horror comic book.

Alexandra Milchan, Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter are producing.

"Hack/Slash," created by Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli, centers on Cassie Hack, a woman who symbolizes the lone girl who survives at the end of every horror movie. Hack not only survived, she has become a killer of killers and travels to small towns across the country hunting slashers in the vein of "Halloween's" Michael Myers, "Friday the 13th's" Jason Voorhees and "A Nightmare on Elm Street's" Freddy Krueger. She is partnered on her journey with Vlad, a hulking companion who serves as her protector.

The project, with a current script by Justin Marks, has seen several directors come and go, but looks to be finally ready to bust out of the gate. Relativity needs to get its Rogue apparatus in motion and "Hack/Slash" fits the bill of the kind of fare it's looking for.

A winter start is being eyed.

Bond is attached to direct "The Host," a remake of the South Korean monster movie, as well as "The Hunger" at Warners. He repped by CAA and Management 360.
