Yet another graphic novel tie-in to a movie with an all star cast of artists attached. I swear, this is too good to be true.
Heidi over at the Beat says, Cameron Stewart (“Seaguy”), Tommy Lee Edwards (“Marvel 1985”), Nico Henrichon (“Pride of Baghdad”) will collaborate with writer Jordan Mechner to bring the Jake Gyllenhaal film to four-color pages. Mechner wrote the video game to which the film is based upon. And that’s right, you guessed it, there will be a panel discussing the book at SDCC, at 11:30 on Friday at the Disney Press panel.
- The Flickcast reports that workaholic Christos Gage is adapting Dante’s epic poem, The Divine Comedy for DC Comics. They also feature some great screengrabs from the video game due in 2010. Looks epic.
- “Oh no, not THE HORNETS!” Nicolas Cage joins “The Green Hornet”. I’m sorry, I just couldn’t help myself. This movie is like rubber necking a car accident on the 59th Street bridge. Something bad happens seemingly every month. Stephen Chow is out as Kato, but they add Nicolas Cage and Cameron Diaz. I don’t know, with the amounts of weird choices in this movie from director Michel Gondry to these two, this is going to be one very intriguing movie. Or a car wreck.
- This is for my girlfriend: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have a writer! His name is John Frusca and he wrote Young Guns! Woah. Cowabunga, dude.
