Commercial director Fredrik Bond has come aboard to direct Hack/Slash, Rogue's adaptation of a cult horror comic book.

Here's what The Hollywood Reporter says:

Hack/Slash, created by Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli, centers on Cassie Hack, a woman who symbolizes the lone girl who survives at the end of every horror movie. Hack not only survived, she has become a killer of killers and travels to small towns across the country hunting slashers in the vein of Halloween's Michael Myers, Friday the 13th's Jason Voorhees and A Nightmare on Elm Street's Freddy Krueger. She is partnered on her journey with Vlad, a hulking companion who serves as her protector.

Justin Marks wrote the script, and the film is expected to get under way in the winter.
