We can’t improve on the classic Variety-ese in their lead for this story:
Eyeing its next movie franchise, Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp has inked with Gallic graphic novel publisher Casterman for the bigscreen adaptation rights to Jacques Tardi’s classic comicbook series “Aventures Extraordinaires d’Adele Blanc-Sec.”
The star of nine GNs, Adele Blanc-Sec is a tough journalist who battles threats both occult and brutish between the wars. According to the piece, the film is viewed as the first of a trilogy.
EuropaCorp has also acquired Septieme Choc, a graphic novel publishing house aimed at encouraging work by young artists from underprivileged areas.
Hopefully Besson will keep Blanc-Sec’s clothes on and we’ll see this someday in America.
