While comics and graphic novels being optioned for film are practically a daily occurrence around here, there’s one movie that we would REALLY like to see get made, and that’s the planned BRAT PACK film from Ars Nova (BLACK DYNAMITE). A stunningly dark look at the superhero universe, it’s one of the most disturbing — and pointed — takes on the genre ever.
Now, we hear from the grapevine that the adaptation has a director — Tarik Saleh is on board to direct a live-action version that is faithful to the tone of the source. Saleh, whose background is as a graffiti artist, is known for METROPIA, an innovative animated Swedish film with a script by Saleh, Fredrik Edin and the late Stig Larsson.
Let the casting ideas begin for Midnight Mink, Judge Jury and the rest of the Slumberg superhero set.
