Undone By Blood: AMC & Norman Reedus adapting western comics into series

The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus has teamed with AMC to develop the series adaptation of AfterShock Comics’ fan-favorite western revenge comic book series titled Undone By Blood or the Shadow of a Wanted Man with Reedus potentially attached for one of the leading roles. This news comes after Deadline reports that the 51-year-old actor has recently signed a two-year first-look development deal with AMC Studios which further strengthens the partnership between Reedus and AMC after 10 years of working together on the hit zombie series.

Co-written by Lonnie Nadler and Zac Thompson with Sami Kivelä as its artist, the first issue of Undone By Blood or the Shadow of a Wanted Man was published earlier this year. Set in the early 1970s, it follows the story of Ethel Grady Lane as she tries to avenge the death of her family by returning home to Sweetheart, Arizona in search of their murderer.

The officially synopsis reads: “As Ethel navigates the eccentric town and its inhabitants, she learns that the quaint veneer hides a brewing darkness. She has no choice but to descend into a ring of depravity and violence, with her only ally an Old West novel that follows famed gunslinger Solomon Eaton. As both stories unfold simultaneously, a love of fiction informs choices in reality, for better or worse.”

The series adaptation will be executive produced by Reedus, JoAnne Colonna and Amanda Vernon through their Bigbaldhead productions banner along with Nadler, Thompson and AfterShock’s Lee Kramer and Jon Kramer.

“Working with Norman and the team at Bigbaldhead to bring Undone by Blood to television is legitimately a dream come true,” Thompson said in a statement (via Comic Book). “From day one of our conversations it was clear we were all drawn to the material for the same reasons. The western genre casts a long shadow over the American film industry and it’s so exciting to create a show that will explore the impact of that legacy while also paying tribute to it. The dual narrative structure of the story makes it perfect for the transition to television. Fans of classic Westerns will get their Sergio Leone tales of justice on the frontier. And fans of quirky Coen Brothers neo-westerns will get theirs too. It’s an embarrassment of genre riches.”

He continued, “I’m not going to lie. The possibility of having Norman Reedus play the co-lead of your television show is mind-blowingly amazing as he’s the perfect fit for a legendary pulp gunslinger like Solomon Eaton. Right from the jump, Norman understood Sol like he was an extension of himself. He saw all the things we saw in the character and to be honest, Norman’s basically already a badass cowboy. We couldn’t be more excited to see his take on Sol. It’s thrilling to share the world of Undone by Blood with a whole new audience and we’re so damn ready for people to meet Ethel Grady Lane.”
