Let it Snow, let it Snow, let it Snow. Benjamin Rivers's graphic novel Snow, already adapted as a quirky video game, is now set to become a feature film.

Local moviemaker Ryan Couldrey will direct a story set within Toronto's Queen Street West strip, an ever-changing locale and a symbol of urban life's fluid landscape.

The action follows lead character Dana (played by Nina Iordanova), described as a "woman who likes her job, her friends and the cozy comfort of her neighbourhood" but "doesn't deal well with confrontation."

Snow, forecast for the fall of 2014, isn't the first Toronto-set comic to get a live-action deal. Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim was adapted for the Michael Cera-starring Scott Pilgrim vs. the World in 2010.

Snow's confrontation – the disruption of the familiar – promises to be less violent, but just as jarring.
