Tuesday Traps, Contracts And Other Heresies

Posted by September 1, 2009 Comment

atomicCould 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…

“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.”
