According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mandate Pictures has picked up the film rights to The Ghouly Boys, a children's comic book series, with Benderspink attached to produce. Ghouly follows four sweet, young monsters -- a wolf boy, a kid zombie, a young sea monster and the son of the boogeyman plus their flight-challenged pet bat -- who have a hard time fitting in with the "normal" human kids until they find each other.

The comic, written and drawn by single-named artist Christopher, first was published in 2004 by Slave Labor Graphics.
