“I was given a second chance in death. Vengeance was offered, and I was quick to accept.”

Based on the Stranger Comics Graphic Novel http://bit.ly/UntamedKS, here’s a sneak peek at the pitch animatic done by Film Roman (The Simpsons, Hellboy Animated, Ultimate Spider-Man) for The Untamed Animated TV series, a dark vengeance saga set within a brutal fantasy world. It’s not final animation, just a rough sketch to give an idea of the cinematic mood the series will have. Sean Bean is voicing the lead character. Director: Alex Soto (Ultimate Spider-Man). Producers: Film Roman’s GM Dana Booton (Ultimate-Spiderman, The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes), Lloyd Levin (Hellboy, Watchmen); Andrew Cosby (Eureka, Two Guns); with Andrew Sugerman (Conviction, Death Sentence); and Untamed writer/creator Sebastian A. Jones (Dusu, I Am Mixed). Concept artist: Tomm Coker (Punisher, Batman, Daredevil), who gave the animatic the same gritty “Frazetta Western” tone that artist Peter Bergting (Baltimore, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings) and art director Darrell May (Dusu, Pinata) gave to the comic series.

The Untamed Synopsis:

Would you damn yourself to save the ones you love? Hidden within the Desert of the Dying Tree lies a town run by ruthless killers, a growing cancer upon the vast and volatile fantasy world of Asunda. Some say it’s a watering hole for the devil. For one man, it’s a second chance at revenge… and a last chance at redemption.

A Stranger has returned to the brutal Town of Oasis, a violent past haunting his every step. It’s been ten years since his wife and child were on the verge of turning him from wickedness, but they were murdered and so was he. Now, the Stranger has been released from Hell to reap the seven souls responsible. But having little recollection of his former life, he is lost in a sea of faded memories, glimpses of the life that was taken from him coming back in broken shards as he leaves a bloody trail.

Conflict arises when lust for his lover steers him from his path of vengeance, and hate is tempered by the young orphan Niobe, who reminds him of his daughter. She acts as his conscience and ultimately his only hope for salvation.
