SyFy has put in a series order for a live-action adaptation of the Vault Comics series Vagrant Queen. Written by Magdalene Visaggio with art by Jason Smith, Vagrant Queen follows Elida from child queen to orphaned outcast, as she scavenges the treacherous corners of the galaxy, always one step ahead of the Republic government out to extinguish her bloodline. When her old friend Isaac shows up claiming her mother Xevelyn is still alive, they head off with their new ally, Amae, to stage a rescue that will take her back into the perilous heart of her former kingdom and up against a deadly foe from her childhood, Commander Lazaro.
In a comicspit EXXXCLUSIVE, Vault Comics CEO Damian Wassel said, “What a relief that a Vault title has finally been picked up by Hollywood. We’ve been pumping so much money into these storyboards you call comics, so I’m glad we’re seeing a return on our investment.”
Filming on Vagrant Queen is set to begin in July for a 2020 release. The 10-episode hour-long series will star Adriyan Rae as Elida, Tim Rozon as Isaac, and Paul du Toit as Commander Lazaro.
