Catherine Hardwicke to direct feminist comic book story Heathen


Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke is returning to fantasy-adventure films after signing on to adapt comic book Heathen for the big screen.

The film will center upon a fierce, feminist Viking warrior who declares war on the god Odin for his injustices towards women.

Natasha Alterici launched her Heathen comics in 2017 following a successful Kickstarter investor campaign, and Kerry Willamson has adapted the books for the film.

Hardwicke now has the job of casting her lead, Aydis, for the project.
