Talk of an adaptation of cartoonist Peter Bagge's graphic novel Apocalypse Nerd has been going on for years, but the team that's been trying to bring it to the screen may be one step closer to getting there.
Production company Independent Content has launched a Kickstarter to raise £88,736 (roughly $142, 750 USD) for the project. If all goes to plan, writer/director Tupaq Felber could start shooting as early as this year, the Kickstarter description says. Check out the video for the project after the jump.
While mainstream paranoia points to 2012 as the year the world ends, fans of storied cartoonist Peter Bagge know the whole thing already went down five years years back in the pages of Dark Horse's "Apocalypse Nerd." Such knowledge could soon expand exponentially if Tupaq Felber is successful in bringing his six-part live action adaptation of the series to the BBC under the modified title "Wasted."
