Another of Warren Ellis' books make its way to the big screen!
It looks like Juan Jose Ryp and Warren Ellis' comic book ' Black Summer' will be receiving a film adaptation according to a report by Variety. The film will be produced by Vigilante Entertainment, a relatively new production company, and the project is being led by Ryne Pearson ("Knowing"). This is not the first of Ellis' films that is receiving the Hollywood treatment! 'Black Summer' will join the ranks of Ellis' 'Red' which is currently in development at Summit Entertainment, and ' Ocean' which is being produced by Hollywood Gang.
The comic was first released in 2007 by Avatar Press and is considered to be a dark superhero story in the similar style to ' Watchmen.' The story centers around a John Horus, and the Seven Guns who, being dissatisfied with the political situation of the United States, decide to take matters into their own hands after scientifically modifying their bodies. The comic is considered to be a dark and politically charged story. It will be interesting to see Ellis' story translate to the big screen. Are you looking forward to the film?
