Circle of Confusion, the production company behind AMC's "The Walking Dead," is developing an adaptation of "Sheltered," the survival thriller published by Image Comics.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, indie filmmaker Jesse Peyronel ("Siren"), who penned an episode of NBC's "Dracula," is attached to write and direct.

Created by Ed Brisson and Johnnie Christmas, "Sheltered" centers on secluded survivalist compound in the Pacific Northwest, where a group of families braces for what it believes is the imminent end of civilization. But no amount of bunkers and stockpiled rations and ammunition prepares the adults for the threat from within their community: a bloody uprising by their own children.

"Sheltered" debuted in July; a new arc began this month with the release of Issue 6.

Circle of Confusion is developing a television adaptation of "Outcast," the upcoming Image/Skybound horror series by Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta.
