IESB Exclusive! With the success of WB’s 300, studios are scrambling to find other graphic novel properties that will translate well onto the big screen. Reliable studio sources are revealing that the upcoming graphic novel “War in Heaven” is being targeted for quick development by several studios.
ImageTrac 2 Media, is developing a feature film adaptation of the forthcoming comic book series “War in Heaven.” The project has been dubbed “the next 300.” The comic book series, created by producer Jeff Krelitz, is scheduled to be co-written by screenwriter Craig Fernandez, fresh off adapting Arthur C. Clarke’s Time’s Eye for Sci-Fi Channel and comic book legend Keith Giffen. Ex Machina co-creator and Eisner award winning artist Tony Harris is drawing the book.
