I know. I don’t believe it either.
Duncan Jones, he of Warcraft, Source Code and, more importantly, Moon, has said he’s going to do a comic book movies next.
A little nervous about this, but hell, nervous is where the fun is!
I’m going to be making a comic book movie next! A pretty special one.
That’s the initial tease…
Second tease to come in a few days!

There are articles across the interwebs certain it’s not anything to do with the big two (DC or Marvel). A number of them mention publishers like Image or Dark Horse and the kind of properties they (the writers of said articles) have in mind.
But I’m hopeful a forthcoming movie will be based on a character from The Galaxy’s Greatest Comic.
Other than Judge Dredd, there are loads, LOADS, of characters in 2000AD who could carry a really exciting film.
Rogue Trooper. A genetically engineered soldier, the last one of his kind, who searches for the General who betrayed his own.
Strontium Dog. A mutant bounty hunter business.
The A.B.C. Warriors. Seven warrior robots drawn together to go to Mars and fight for humanity.
Nemesis the Warlock. A demon shaped alien who fightes against the fascism of a distant future earth.
There are loads, loads more. I’d love for a Nemesis/A.B.C. Warriors movie. That kind of thing is probably unfilmable but, my god, it would incredible to watch.
Of course, I’d be equally as happy with a sequel to Karl Urban’s Dredd.
