'Thor' writers join vampire film 'Damn Nation'

Ashley Edward Miller, Zack Stentz board Paramount project

Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz, who wrote "Thor" for Marvel, have come aboard to pen "Damn Nation," a futuristic vampire project lurking at Paramount.

Dark Horse Entertainment's Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg are producing the adaptation, which is based on a comic by Andrew Cosby and art by Jason Alexander (not the "Seinfeld" actor). Michael Aguilar and Dean Georgaris are also producing.

Set in a U.S. evacuated after an attack from "inhuman nocturnal predators," the comic tells the tale of the survivors after the government has been forced to relocate to London while scientists search for a solution.

Cosby and his Boom! Studios partner Ross Richie are exec producing.

In addition to "Thor," the WME- and Principato/Young-repped Miller and Stentz are writer-producers on "Fringe," the supernatural Fox series created by J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. They also wrote Fox's "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles."
