According to Variety, Comicbook creator Philip Gelatt will be making his directing debut with County Road K.

Gelatt also wrote the screenplay.

"I'm fascinated by the macabre little stories that occur off the main roads of Middle America, and County Road K is exactly that kind of tale: small, twisted and unsettling," stated Gelatt.

Gelatt sold his initial graphic novel series, "Labor Days," to Oni Press. He also finished work on Nurse 3D for Lionsgate.

County Road K will start shooting next month in New Jersey.
