Could this be a giant Josh Hoopes size trap? Design/printer owner George Horch is opening a new comic store, Atomic Comics, in mid town Sacramento. He says it “will look like a really cool alleyway” with faux brick walls, drain spouts, steam vents and a New York-style newsstand – along with an enormous Hulk fist emerging from the ceiling and giant murals of superheroes on the walls. I wonder if there will be room for a Wanted poster?
In the Bleeding Cool forums, movie producer Don Murphy (Apt Pupil, From Hell, LXG, Transformers 1 and 2, We3) wrote that “Marvel has many many contracts like for Spiderman and X Men films that will NEVER lapse. NOT EVER.”
As if to make that point, Fox didn’t officially announce to Variety that Akiva Goldsman will be producing a Fantastic Four reboot movie written Heroes producer and Green Lantern writer Michael Green. The piece mentions that
Fox controls “Fantastic Four” in perpetuity — as long as it continues making the films. Fox has the same arrangement on Marvel Comics properties “X-Men,” “Daredevil” and “Silver Surfer.”
Which seems very timely.
Fangoria reports that a movie in preproduction, Prince Of Pieces, or Action-Jesus! as I’d prefer to call it, will be published as a graphic novel first, by screenplay writer Sam Miserendino and Colin Blanton of whom Sam says “he sees flesh eating Jesus exactly as I do”
The film is described as
a comedic horror movie with the killer as Jesus Christ, who goes around killing everyone in Biblical fashion: crown of thorns, pillars of salt, crawling leprosy, that sort of thing.
I think I’m going to have to write that The Misney Universe comic book, you know…
