Benderspink has brought on Steven C. Miller to direct Area 52, a sci-fi action movie based on the Image Comics series by Brian Haberlin. According to Variety, Jack Phillips wrote the adaptation of the comic.

At a storage facility in Antarctica that houses top-secret alien wares after Nevada's Area 51 is done testing them, an Army nurse must restore order after a mercenary attack has unleashed a menacing terror.

Benderspink has been setting up comic book properties at various studios including Power and Glory and Y, the Last Man at New Line, The Ghouly Boys at Mandate and Pet Robots at Disney.

Miller's first feature, the zombie horror film Automaton Transfusion, has been making the rounds of the festivals and was acquired by Dimension.
