Brimming with political conspiracy and raging with rival alien mobs, nothing is ever as it seems on
the streets of RED CITY. Writer Daniel Corey (MORIARTY) and artist Mark Dos Santos bring you a
whole new take on American crime noir, coming this June to Image Comics.
In the wake of a system-wide civil war, hard-nosed interplanetary investigator Cal Talmage is given
a simple mission to find a missing ambassador’s daughter in Mars Central City. It all seems
routine at first, but an experienced vet like Cal knows when trouble is brewing.
Coming off a run on the acclaimed series MORIARTY, also published by Image Comics, writer Daniel
Corey brings you a new mystery that combines femme fatales and hard- boiled heroics with classic
science fiction. Federal Security Officer Talmage just wants to be left alone, but with a girl in
danger, a corrupt mayor in power and the lives of an entire race at stake, he’s got some tough
choices ahead, because no one comes out clean in this town.
“You might say RED CITY is like L.A. Confidential on Mars,” said Corey. “Ellroy and Chandler
shaking hands with Bradbury. We’ve got a likable-but-troubled cop who tackles a complex case in the
midst of a vast criminal conspiracy, and it happens to take place on Mars. The really exciting
thing is that we’re building an entire world, and the art of Mark Dos Santos brings a
retro-futuristic vibe that will make RED CITY the most dangerous place in the New Solar System.”
The first of four issues of RED CITY arrives in stores 6/11, and can be pre-ordered
using Diamond code APR140490.
Yahoo Movies will apparently premiere the first trailer and poster for Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” on February 18th. The news came from a tweet via Yahoo Singapore, a tweet that has since been taken down but not before being photographed.
Yahoo have also posted up the first photos of the upcoming Marvel Legends toys range featuring detailed and finished characters from the film. Check them below:
Paul Bettany is expanding his work in the Marvel universe, taking on a role beyond the voice of Iron Man’s operating system JARVIS.
The Daily Mail reports that Bettany will play The Vision, an android hero in the upcoming “Avengers: Age of Ultron”.
In the comics, Ultron created The Vision as a weapon to be used against the Avengers. Vision, who can fire beams of radiation and turn invisible, ultimately turned the tables on Ultron and became an Avengers member himself.
Bettany and Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) were at Shepperton Studios this week meeting with director Joss Whedon. Bettany was reportedly involved in “a series of costume, hair and make-up tests and worked with stuntmen and armourers”.
Filming begins next month on locations in the UK and South Africa.
In the story of HAUNTED, the barrier between our world and the spiritual realm was mysteriously torn apart allowing the Earth to be overrun by ghosts, demons and poltergeists. Creatures once thought to be mythological terrorized mankind and society collapsed. Thirteen years later, Sarah McCallister manages to survive by being tough, smart, and looking out only for herself. But when a chance to set the world back to normal arises, she finds herself in the compromising position of putting her faith in strangers for the first time.
HAUNTED is a four-part horror action-adventure written by Scott Chitwood (DRONE, AFTERBURN, DEAD OR ALIVE), illustrated by newcomer Danny Luckert, and colored by Ivan Plascencia (NEOZOIC: TRADER’S GAMBIT). It is also featured in Red 5’s 2014 Free Comic Book Day issue.
“The problem with most ghost stories is that if the characters simply leave the haunted house, all of their problems are over,” said Chitwood. “But if the entire world is the haunted house, there’s nowhere to run or hide. Imagine the end of ‘Ghostbusters’, but with the heroes failing and Gozer taking over the world.”
HAUNTED’s lead character is as broken as the world that shaped her. “Sarah survived a traumatic and dangerous childhood, constantly on the run from all manner of horrors,” said Chitwood. “But if she is to have any hope of saving the world, she must go against every instinct that has kept her alive so far.”
While not yet on shelves, HAUNTED has already attracted the attention of Hollywood and has been optioned by Bryan Singer’s Bad Hat Harry Productions to produce the adaptation of the comic. “As a long-time fan of THE USUAL SUSPECTS and Singer’s X-MEN films,” Chitwood explained, “it was very gratifying to find Bat Hat so enthusiastic about the story and premise of HAUNTED. They have been incredibly supportive and great to work with.”
As Red 5 is an independent publisher, the best way to ensure your copy of HAUNTED this spring is to pre-order it by the end of February from your comic shop using order code FEB141420. Haunted #1 of the four-issue series is set for release on April 30, 2014.
After lengthy negotiations, AMC and Sony Pictures Television have closed a deal to develop Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s controversial 1990s comic book series Preacher as a drama series. The project will be written/executive produced by This Is the End writers/directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, with Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) serving as executive producer/showrunner and Original Films’ Neal Moritz and Vivian Cannon also executive producing. Despite speculation, there are no plans for Rogen to have an onscreen presence at this time. Preacher follows Reverend Jesse Custer, a tough Texas preacher who has lost his faith, has learned that God has left Heaven and abandoned His responsibilities. He finds himself the only person capable of tracking God down, demanding answers, and making Him answer for His dereliction of duty. Accompanying Jesse on his journey is his former girlfriend and a friendly vampire who seems to prefer a pint in the pub to the blood of the innocent. On his tail is an immortal, unstoppable killing machine named the Saint of Killers – a western lone gunman archetype whose sole purpose is to hunt and kill Jesse. “This is a great piece of material for AMC, and we’re thrilled to begin working with the creative team behind it to make another iconic AMC series,” said the network’s EVP Joel Stillerman. AMC is looking to repeat the success of another series based on an edgy comic, The Walking Dead. For Rogen and Goldberg, the deal marks the end of a long journey. “We’ve tried for seven years to work on Preacher and we’re so psyched AMC is finally letting us,” the two said. “It is our favorite comic of all time, and we’re going to do everything we can to do it right. Humperdoo!”
Ennis also reflected on Preacher’s long development path that stretched 16 years and a slew of incarnations: feature films, series and miniseries with various auspices. (HBO took a stab at developing it as a series with Mark Steven Johnson seven years ago). “Steve Dillon and I are very happy to see Preacher being developed for TV, which seems a much more natural home for the story than a 2-hour movie,” Ennis said. “Obviously it’s taken a while, but Ken Levin along with Neal Moritz and his team refused to give up, long after the point when I myself grew skeptical, and their unrelenting enthusiasm for the project has gotten us where we need to be. I’m particularly impressed that Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Sam Catlin understand Preacher fully — meaning they get it for what it is, not some vague approximation,” Ennis said, noting that he and Dillon had been involved in the creative conversation for the TV series. The 1995-2000 comic series Preacher, from DC’s Vertigo imprint, quickly achieved a cult status while also creating controversy with its dark and violent content. In addition to Rogen and Goldberg (through Point Grey Pictures), Catlin, Moritz and Cannon, Preacher is exec produced by Ori Marmur, Ken Levin and Jason Netter.
Former “Mad Men” executive producers Andre and Maria Jacquemetton are teaming with “Gravity” producer David Heyman for a Syfy drama seriesbased on the 72-issue DC comic book “DMZ”.
The Jacquemettons have adapted Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli’s story which is set in a near future after a second American civil war. Manhattan has become a demilitarized zone and a young man finds himself trapped there.
Warner Horizon, Slim Chance Productions and Heyday Films will produce.
A new musical based on the 1985 film Back to the Future will hit the stage in London’s West End next year, the Associated Press reports. The film’s original screenwriters, Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale have teamed with British director Jamie Lloyd to write the book.
They’ve also tapped Alan Selvestri to compose the music and Grammy-winning songwriter Glen Ballard (Alanis Morrissette, Michael Jackson) to write the lyrics. Selvestri has scored many of Zemeckis’ well-known films including Romancing the Stone, Forrest Gump and Cast Away.
The musical is timed to the original film’s 30th anniversary and promises to hone in on the quirky sci-fi element that fans loved in the Eighties. “The production will include illusions, skateboarding and many other surprises that will capture the spirit of the film but freshly interpret it for a new audience,” Lloyd said in a statement.
The original film followed Marty McFly, played by Michael J. Fox, traveling back in time 30 years by way of a tricked-out Delorean. After becoming intertwined in his parents’ high school romance, McFly nearly causes a massive rift in the space-time continuum that threatens his existence.
The film yielded Huey Lewis and the News’ first Number One hit on the Billboard 100 with their single “Power of Love” (Lewis also made a cameo in the film). It also featured an iconic scene where Fox introduces his parents to rock & roll by way of “Johnny B. Goode” at the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance – the rocking guitar number prompted Marvin Berry, one of the backup band members, to call his cousin Chuck so he could hear this new sound over the phone.
The Associated Press reports that if the show does well, it will consider a Broadway run.
