Greg Rucka's WHITEOUT Goes to Hollywood
Greg Rucka's Eisner Award-winning graphic novel WHITEOUT is going to be adapted for the big screen via Joel Silver's new "mini-studio within the studio" at Warner Brothers. After this story about it ran in the New York Times yesterday, Variety reports today that Silver's Dark Castle Prods. has raised $240 million from half a dozen investment firms to make 15 films over the next six years, with Warner Bros. aboard to distribute the entire slate. WHITEOUT has been announced as the first First Dark Castle film to be made under the deal. The pic is expected to start production this winter for release in the first quarter of 2008.
Of course, we've known about this for a while, but its nice to see it "officially" announced to the world. Congratulations, Greg. The fun is just beginning.
