Variety reports that the Archaia Studios Press title 'Starkweather' is the latest comic to be optioned by Bendespink.
The book was created by prolific fantasy novelist Piers Anthony and adapted for comics by David Rodriguez. The premise involves a twentysomething slacker who learns he's descended from a line of sorcerers and has to defend his so-called life from a mysterious coven.
Jon Silk set the property up at Benderspink.
Benderspink has made a barrage of announcements regarding comic book movies since last summer. Projects include 'Y The Last Man', 'Preacher', 'Drafted', 'Hyperactive', 'The Pro', 'Ghouly Boys', 'Pet Robots' and 'Power & Glory' (which you read about on Comics2Film yesterday).
