An animated feature adaptation of John Layman and Rob Guillory's uproariously funny cannibal cop comic Chew has been in the works for a while, and it looks like the project is truly moving forward. The Chew movie has a script by Layman and has cast its Tony Chu and Amelia.

There's a lot of excellent buzz surrounding John Layman and Rob Guillory's comic Chew, the story of an FBI agent who snacks on the dead to absorb their memories. And now the comic is getting its own TV series.
