Johnny Depp to Produce Image Comics' THE VAULT Adaption

In a series of new acquisitions, the actor's Infinitum Nihil and GK Films have purchased the rights to and will produce the underwater horror comic series that had its first release from Image last month.

A small team of treasure hunters struggles to excavate a dangerous and legendary treasure pit before a massive storm hits Sable Island, the 'Graveyard of the North Atlantic'. Equipped with all the latest technology, the scientists believe they are prepared against all of nature's fury, but nothing can prepare them for what they are about to unleash from The Vault.

The Vault is written by Sam Sarkar with art by Garrie Gastonny and is set to be a three issue mini-series.

Christi Dembrowski will produce as president of Nihil with Graham King and Tim Headington from GK Films. King has been working with Martin Scorsese on his child-focused Thanksgiving weekend release Hugo. Depp's production company recently teamed with Disney on a remake of the TV movie The Night Stalker and an unnamed Paul Revere film.
