Sam Raimi and 10 Cloverfield Lane Writers to Adapt I’m the Grim Reaper Webtoon

Story


The webtoon I’m the Grim Reaper by Graveweaver is set to get an adaptation. According to Deadline, Sam Raimi (pictured above) has signed on to executive produce the adaptation along with Zainab Azizi and Graveweaver, the latter of whom will also be part of the development process.

Here’s the premise of I’m the Grim Reaper, as described in the first episode of the Webtoon:

On earth there are bad people, and then there are REALLY BAD people. If you’re one of the latter, you don’t just get sent to Hell, you get sent to Hell and get assigned a job collecting the souls of some of the worst people on Earth. Such is the career path of a young woman named Scarlet, who dies and is delivered down to the fiery underworld only to find herself in an entry level position as…The Grim Reaper!

In addition to Raimi, the adaptation also has writers Josh Campbell and Matt Stuecken on board to pen the script. The two are best known for their work on 10 Cloverfield Lane, where they share a writing credit with Damien Chazelle. They also wrote the script for John Woo’s upcoming film, The Killer.

No news on when the project will go into production, much less make its way to a screen near you. In the meantime, you can (re)read Dreamweaver’s Webtoon here. icon-paragraph-end
