It's the week of Comic-Con! Here's the latest installment of COMIC-CON PITCH 2006, in which Comics2Film endeavors to connect indie comics creators with Hollywood producers.
Shannon Eric Denton is back in front of the Pitch Panel again, this time chatting up apocalyptic thriller BROTHER BEDLAM
Q: Describe BROTHER BEDLAM in two sentences or less.
Shannon Denton (SD): BROTHER BEDLAM debuts this month from DESPERADO/IMAGE COMICS. Created by Eisner Winner Keith Giffen and critically acclaimed writer Shannon Eric Denton.
THE PITCH: A young minister has a crisis of faith when he finds out he's God's sleeper agent and it's up to him to stop the apocalypse.
Q: If you were to compare BROTHER BEDLAM to a movie or TV show what would it be?
SD: It's BLADE meets THE DAVINCI CODE. We've got the non-stop action, we've got the mystery and secret age old societies.
Q: Why do you think BROTHER BEDLAMD would translate to film/TV/animation?
SD: It's got all the action you can cram into a comic and it touches on the age old "who am I" and all that entails. Oh, and Image Comics gave us a big "Awww Yeah!"
Q: Why should movie folks seek you out at Comic-Con?
SD: Keith Giffen and I have a pretty good track record of creating propertiesthat Hollywood likes. Talk to Circle of Confusion. We get things going.
Q: How can folks find you at Comic-Con (please provide booth number and additonal contact info)?
SD: I'll be at the Komikwerks/Actionopolis booth 2302. Hope to see everyone there!
