IDW Publishing on Monday announced that producer Richard Saperstein, former president of production of Dimension Films, has optioned IDW's Snaked for a feature film.

IDW Publishing president and founder Ted Adams and Snaked author Clifford Meth are executive producers. Shara Kay will co-produce and Meth will write the screenplay.

"As a producer, I'm drawn to characters that are forced to explore the limits of their own humanity in situations that test their rational minds," Saperstein said. "The political arena forms the perfect backdrop for Clifford Meth's heady mix of horror, sex and mayhem. I am also pleased to be working with Ted Adams and the folks at IDW, who are always breaking new ground in the world of comics and graphic novels."

"If there is one thing I have learned from my experience with the filmmaking community," Adams said, "it is to work with the very best. We experienced that luxury on 30 Days of Night and now we're fortunate to be partnered with Richard Saperstein, a renowned producer with a stellar track record. Snaked is the most controversial book we have ever published and I know that Richard will bring this story to the screen with incredible style, wit and daring."
