Scary movie icons get what's coming to 'em when Hack/Slash comes to TV

It's not just Marvel and DC getting in on the TV action - The Hollywood Reporter says that a new show based on Image Comics' Hack/Slash is in the works over at Relativity Television, a spin-off of Relativity Media. Skip Woods, screenwriter for A Good Day to Die Hard, will serve as executive producer.

Created in 2004 by Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli, Hack/Slash follows heroine Cassie as she roams the world with her burly, cleaver-wielding protector, Vlad. In a deconstruction and defiance of horror movie tropes and clichés, it's this mini-skirt wearing girl who hunts down the slashers that would normally prey on teenagers.

Think: Dexter, if Dexter was a questionably dressed lady-goth and his victim was Michael Myers. Actually, Dexter once showed up in a crossover with Cassie and Vlad, along with Jason Voorhees.

Hack/Slash is still in the planning stages for now, so it seems a fair way off. But if I know my slasher movies, I'm sure it will sneak up on us when we least expect it.
