Mekhi Phifer’s Facilitator Films will produce the big screen adaptation of BOOM!’s Hunter’s Moon, a miniseries written by screenwriter James L. White. Phifer will also play the lead role in the film, while White is in final negotiations to write the movie script, his first since Ray.
Phifer (NBC’s “ER”) will play a stockbroker who takes his son on a weekend hunting trip in the woods. The teen is kidnapped, forcing the father to do the criminals’ bidding to save the boy’s life.
Boom co-founders Andrew Cosby and Ross Richie will produce under their Boom Entertainment banner with Phifer and his Facilitator partner Ronnie Warner.
White (who co-owns the project with Boom) published “Moon” as a five-part comic series last year and released it in novel form this month via the Boom label.
