‘Petrol Head’ lands film option deal at MR. B FILMS

‘Petrol Head’ may be heading to a big screen near you soon.

Petrol Head, an excellent drag-racing robot sci-fi adventure by Rob Williams and Pye Parr, has been optioned for film by Lee Brazier of Mr. B Films. The news arrives the very same day the trade paperback of Petrol Head lands in comic shops. The story is primed for a theatrical debut, considering that movies like Mad Max, and Fast and the Furious are huge audience draws.

Petrol Head is a dystopia sci-fi race series mixing climate crisis commentary with the tale of a bruising robot named Petrol Head who has an engine for a head.

Lee Brazier was Executive Producer on Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis’ Yesterday and Matt Palmer’s Calibre. Mr B Films will be working with Janice Fidler and Blondel Aidoo of Rabbit Hole Studios to adapt Petrol Head for the screen. Rabbit Hole Studios’ credits include VFX Producers on X-Men: Days of Future Past and Co-Producer/VFX Producers on ATLAS & RED NOTICE.

In other Petrol Head news, Komics Initiative will soon be publishing a French Language edition of the TPB collection for the European Market.
