THOR Writer Joins FREAKSHOW

Variety reports that Mark Protosevich, who penned the first draft of Thor, is looking to write and possibly direct an adaptation of the comic book Freakshow. He's also producing the project with Sheldon Turner and Jennifer Klein.

The comic, created by David Server and Jackson Lanzing with art from Joe Suitor, tells of five youngsters who are turned into mutants by a cataclysmic chemical explosion and must decide whether to use their newfound powers to save the city or exact revenge on those responsible after the world's only superhero is killed.

The book is published by Ape Entertainment (the same folks bringing you Scratch9 by C2F's Rob Worley).

 

 

Raimi Draws Down on EARP: SAINTS FOR SINNERS

Heat Vision reports that Sami Raimi is lined up to direct the big-screen adaptation of the Radical Publishing title Earp: Saints for Sinners.

The comic, created by Matt Cirulnick and David Manpearl of Mandeville Films re-imagines the legendary gunslinger in a near future Las Vegas where he has to take on the outlaws of the new West. The book was written by Cirulnick and M. Zachary Sherman with art by Mack Chater.

Cirulnick is writing the script for the film.

 

 

GANTZ Trailer

There's a new trailer for the Japanese-language live-action adaptation of Hiroya Oku's manga series Gantz online. The book tells the story of a pair of teenage friends who die tragically and become part of a "game" where they battle aliens. There's a black orb involved.

The film arrives in Asian markets in January 2011. Check it out:

A Better Look at THOR

In other Thor news, better res images from the movie have arrived online. The Hero Complex blog presents a high-res look at that shot of Odin's throne room. In it you can get a better look at details from the image. Odin's Helmet is revealed to be more like the Loki curly-horns and less of a Kirby tuning-fork than we though. Also, Loki and Fandral have quite a bit more color than was apparent in the previous version.

Click the image below for the high-res glory!

The only thing interesting here is no Eva Mendes in GR2.  I just can't picture GR with a love interest...

Earp: I love radical books, amazing art, good stories. I would really like to see one of these announced movies final start filming. I love Raimi, doesn't he have Warcraft to do first though? That puts this back atleast a few years if so.

Walking Dead: Not sure I can survive till October. Looking forward to this show more than anything right now.

The Goon: The good looks awesome. Never read the comic, but its a film I will check out.

Goon rocks looks to be lots of fun.

Rockhead 7/20/2010 9:02:54 AM

The goon looks great, and seems to have the same spirit as the book. REally looking forward to it!

Roqueja 7/20/2010 9:29:26 AM

Walking Dead, Goon and Thor.  Things look frikkin awesome.

aegrant 7/20/2010 9:53:25 AM

Never heard of the Goon until today - Looks watchable, I will have to check out the books.

Those Thor pics are effing awsome!

I will miss looking at Eva Mendez in GR2 but not her acting.

Higgy 7/20/2010 10:18:04 AM

Loving those Thor pics.  For those complaining about the lack of helmets in the other shots, we see they're wearing them.  At least Odin and Loki are.  And Odin has his 2 ravens which is cool too.  Looks AWESOME!

littlemikey979 7/20/2010 10:45:17 AM

Thor is looking more badass with every new pic that show up. Cant wait to see it. The Goon looks funny as hell, never read the books but it looks like I have been missing out.

And I guess everyone is happy there will be no Eva in GR2.
