Epic Kill and Devoid of Life are in line for cinematic adaptations.

Variety reports that Content House has acquired the rights to Raffaele Ienco's creator-owned Image Comics ventures, and is planning to bring them to a new medium.

Devoid of Life is a 2008 sci-fi horror graphic novel that tells the story of inhabitants of a mysterious planet within our solar system, who will kill anyone that learns of their existence. Melinda Hsu Taylor will pen a screenplay for the adaptation.

Epic Kill is an upcoming comic series that tells the story of an 18-year-old super-assassin named Song, who struggles to remember a former life. Josh Morris and Mark Saffian will executive produce the film for Content House.

Ienco said of Epic Kill: "Song was taught to 'suppress all human emotion and compassion' because of her mission - which is far bigger than what you see in the first issue - can't be completed by someone with doubt, someone who would stop for even a second and question what she is doing.

"She's come to America to fulfil this mission and left all the tears she'll ever shed back home in the body of the little girl she once was. Anyone who gets in her way... better move."

Epic Kill #1 will be available in print and digital on May 2. A release date for the movie adaptations is yet to be announced.
