Variety reports that a bunch of new comic book movie deals are on their way, and first out of the gate is Terry Moore’s SF tale ECHO, which has been acquired in a six figure deal by Lloyd Levin, who produced WATCHMEN.

“Echo” tells the story of a photographer who is preoccupied with her personal problems until she gets doused by liquid metal from a military experiment gone awry. She discovers she can now harness the power of a nuclear bomb, and soon the military wants its walking weapon.

Levin also produced the “Hellboy” films, both with Larry Gordon. Levin is also a producer on the upcoming Paul Greengrass-directed Universal drama “Green Zone.”

According to the piece while comic book movies remain incredibly popular, studios are looking increasingly to non-superhero fare.


  1. Hooray for Terry! Now if only there could be more movement on a SiP tv series…

    And I’m glad that even though the superhero boom is coming to its inevitable decline, Hollywood is at least smart enough not to ignore the rest the medium has to offer.

  2. Good luck Terry! I guess you didn’t have enough fun with your Strangers in Paradise Hollywood experiences. :-O
