Afterburn (TBD)



Afterburn is based on the graphic novel of the same name, which is set in the aftermath of a massive solar flare that destroys the Eastern Hemisphere, turning it into a wasteland filled with mutant creatures. The comics follow a team of treasure hunters who brave the wasteland to retrieve various valuable items.

Butler will play the team leader, and the story finds him taking his team to Paris to nab the Mona Lisa.

This project is in pre-production.
