Zombies are here to stay thanks in large part to the continued success of The Walking Dead (and its recent spinoff, Fear The Walking Dead), and if you’re a fan of the graphic novel Z-Men or of all things zombie, you’ll be thrilled to know that Lionsgate is developing a film based on the new comic series.

THR reports that Lionsgate is developing a film based on Z-Men, the Jeff McComsey’s comic book series which takes place in the world of George Romero’s classic Night of the Living Dead. The story begins with a pair of buddy cop Secret Service agents sent to investigate the appearance of a zombie, but they find a town overrun with the brain-eating undead, and it quickly becomes clear that they’re in the midst of a potential apocalypse.

Although it’s often described as a Night of the Living Dead spinoff, only some of the story actually takes place in Romero’s classic universe. The first Z-Men comic book hit shelves in September, with the second scheduled to arrive soon.

Z-Men was the first title from Double Take, the comic book imprint of video game developer Take-Two Interactive, who have also teamed up with Lionsgate and Avi and Ari Arad to develop a film based on the hit game Borderlands.
