SCOOP: Life Of Agony's Alan Robert To Produce Film Of Own Comic, Wire Hangers

He doesn't do things by halves, does he?

Alan Robert, bassist and original member for rock band Life of Agony and founder of punk band Spoiler NYC, is now making a live action movie of his own comic, Wire Hangers from IDW, which in a stunning departure for musicians-turned-comic-creatorse, he wrote and drew himself without swiping from any other major comic books.

Wire Hangers is described;

A series of abductions plagues New York City and no one is safe. When Anna Davis, a feisty young reporter, goes undercover to try and snag the big exclusive, she stumbles upon clues that give us a glimpse into what could be the most disturbing government conspiracy of our time. Pill-popping detectives, corrupt secret agents and a mysterious, disfigured homeless man are all inter-connected in this horrific tale of revenge and redemption.

He's started a company Wasted Talent Entertainment to do so. The film will also have IDW's CEO, Ted Adams as Executive Producer, and you can hear those contractual clauses snap into action. Alan Robert and Jeff Mazzola are also attached as producers, with costume design by Robert Hall of Almost Human FX.
