In an email to DelToroFilms.com, Runoff creater Tom Manning has confirmed that his independent comic is being considered as a feature by Guillermo Del Toro.
“What can I say, this would be a match made in heaven”, says Manning. “Runoff is the sort of series that needs the right team to pull it off and I think this would be it. Guillermo’s uncanny ability to convey a sense of awe, a sense of horror, and a sense of humanity would allow Runoff to translate to the big screen in a confident way. As a series, Runoff is all over the place- it’s a horror story, it’s a comedy, it’s a human drama, it’s a fever dream- sometimes all at once. And it takes a special person to handle such a narrative challenge, and Guillermo is one of those rare people.”
Currently on the Runoff “film team” is Guillermo, producer Lloyd Levin (Hellboy), Nick Nunziata, and Manning himself.
