“Outcast”, the new comic series from Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead) and artist, Paul Azaceta, has taken its next steps in progressing towards a television series. Announced just a little while ago on Deadline, Gone Girl’s Patrick Fugit has been cast as main lead, Kyle Barnes. Rounding out the cast is Philip Glenister (Life on Mars) and Gabriel Bateman (Annabelle).
The series, set to debut on Cinemax, will feature a pilot episode directed by Adam Wingard. Wingard is quickly climbing the film latter, with “The Guest” and “You’re Next” already under his belt.
Sure to be a hit, “Outcast” by IMAGE and SKYBOUND is the story of Kyle Barnes, a young man who’s been plagued by possession since he was a child. He sets to seek answers, only to uncover something that could end all life on Earth as we know it.
