THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Producer Michael Uslan Developing New Superhero Web Series
While it isn't based on any existing Marvel or DC property, The Dark Knight Rises producer Michael Uslan is teaming up with Blip for an original superhero web series which has been described as a "film noir adventure". Read on for details!
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Michael Uslan and digital media company Blip are teaming up for The Great S. Cape!; a 12 part live action series which, "follows the superhero Stephen Cape, a magician and illusionist who applies his skills -- and refusal to use a gun -- to his newfound mission as a private detective. When he stumbles across the most insidious murder plot in Hollywood, powerful forces set out to stop him at all costs." Production is due to start at the beginning of April, while South African actor Ian Duncan has been cast in the role of Stephen. Uslan, who served as executive producer on Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy, will write and executive produce. "The Great S. Cape! marks the triumphant return of the chapter-by-chapter Saturday matinee movie serial of old that was dominated by superheroes like Batman, Superman and Captain America," Uslan told the site. "Original web series are at the cutting edge of the entertainment industry, and working with Blip I can reach audiences in new ways with more immersive characters and stories."
