Comics creator Rob Venditti writer of 'The Surrogates' chatted with MTV Splash Page about progress on the film, and the graphic novel sequel that's due out from Top Shelf Comics soon.
After several visits to the set of “The Surrogates” during filming, he says he is “really happy with the way things look and what they’re done with it,” and that despite a few changes to the comic plot, such as moving the setting from Atlanta to Boston, readers can expect a faithful adaptation from the film.
“There are always going to be changes when you’re going from any type of medium to another medium. To me, the most important part of the graphic novel is the relationship between Greer and his wife, because it humanizes the whole idea of surrogates, and that’s going to be in the film… It’s very much a story about the characters more than about the explosions.”
