The world of comics may be run by the “Big Two” (DC and Marvel), but with critical darlings like “Hellboy” and its spin-off “BPRD,” as well as more Star Wars comics than you can shake a lightsaber at, Dark Horse has become a major player in the comic book world. And one of the books that they are currently releasing that is truly great (just the type of sci-fi drama even fans of The Criterion Collection could get behind) comes from the mind of Matt Kindt, and it’s heading to theaters with a big time producer.
THR is reporting that Ridley Scott is set to produce an adaptation of the comic “Mind MGMT” for Fox. The book follows the story of a female journalist who comes across a secret organization backed by the government that houses special, psychic, agents.
As a huge fan of the book (it’s really one of today’s best books), I not only love the story, but think that it is absolutely perfect for a film adaptation. Given the right creative team behind the script and the camera, this could be one of the better comic book adaptations around. And again, if you’re a fan of science fiction or dramatic thrillers sprint to your local comic shop and pick up some issues. It’s one of today’s best books, and is a must read for comic nerds or any lover of top notch fiction.
