By JohnWilbanks - 1/15/2013
Producer's Todd Garner and Brooklyn Weaver have decided to take on production of a new feature film based on Rob Liefeld's GODYSSEY comic.

Garner's Broken Road and Weaver's Energy entertainment will produce. Story centers on the gods of the grand pantheon, including Zeus, Buddha, Ra and Pangu, who must come together to fight a legion of fallen gods in an epic battle over mankind.

Garner discovered the project last month via Twitter when comic book creator Rob Liefeld tweeted about "The Godyssey" becoming his next big project to manager/producer Weaver. Garner and Broken Road exec Sean Robins heard the details of Liefeld's idea -- currently in outline form -- and moved to partner with the duo and lock up the rights.




The Godyssey #1 hit in 1996 and was somewhat controversial in its opening sequences. It starts with Jesus Christ on the cross being mocked by Zeus and the other classical Grecian gods. Jesus comes off the cross to take on Poseidon, Hercules, and ultimately Zeus himself.

After a few panels we find out that this was only a dream sequence by 90's Image mainstay Avengelyne. She and Glory see this as a prophesy and head off to another dimension to stop Zeus from having an all out battle with God.

YES

If any feet are shown in the movie whatsoever I'm going to bash it infinitely on every message board I find for not being true to the source material. Just like you guys.
CarlXVIGarfield - 1/15/2013, 12:01 PM
use real actors but give them Liefeld style proportions. I'd go see that!

Oh, and: STOP throwing money at that guy!

Is it April Fools Day already?

This movie will be impossible to cast. They'll never find enough footless people with broken spines to fill all the roles.

Fake, I don't see any utility pouches on the cover.
jj2112 - 1/15/2013, 12:08 PM
Eh, Grecian gods? Do they have a problem with white hair?
DioFoRio - 1/15/2013, 12:10 PM
seriously...the saddest part of his story is ...he doesn't have another job.Drawing...that's it. How the [frick] in 20 years did you get worse then you were when you started.
GodzillaKart - 1/15/2013, 12:10 PM
Hmmm. Zeus vs. Jesus. I would like to officially request that match-up for a future CBM Fight Club.
DioFoRio - 1/15/2013, 12:13 PM
I would rather wipe my ass with three bucks than buy this book.
LEEE777 - 1/15/2013, 12:14 PM
Well IF this ever happens...

By the sounds of it, gonna need a big ASS budget! :P
DioFoRio - 1/15/2013, 12:16 PM
straight to Beta.
HeadPool420 - 1/15/2013, 12:17 PM
It's cool calm down everyone, this will be a direct to DVD release or it will be a SyFy movie of the week!
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 1/15/2013, 12:18 PM
ughhhh, why? this news is like being told you got cancer. godyssey was the greatest piece of shit i read as a horny pimple faced nirvana loving teenager.

This guy used to own in the early 90's. Crazy.
astromerc - 1/15/2013, 12:34 PM
Man I need to start my own comic book, this sounds gwad awful! Hollywood wtf!
Stumblin - 1/15/2013, 12:40 PM
[frick] Liefeld, [frick] him with a big stick wrapped in rusted barbed wire.
JesusChrist - 1/15/2013, 12:40 PM
I sense to much evil in that comicus!
Shamo - 1/15/2013, 12:49 PM
You had me at "ROB LIEFELD."
CaptainObvious - 1/15/2013, 12:49 PM
@Jollem- If I had a Twitter account I would write an essay to Liefeld listing off everything wrong with his art because there sure is a hell of alot more wrong than just his inability to draw feet.

By the way, this comic sounds like something Frank Miller would write. The fact that somebody in Hollywood thinks that a Liefeld property is worthy of being put on film is beyond me.
PsyGuy - 1/15/2013, 12:52 PM
That drawing is seriously disgusting.
Fogs - 1/15/2013, 12:59 PM
ahhahahahaha

seriously, look at the body of that girl! I mean, dude!
Fogs - 1/15/2013, 1:05 PM
@monkeyballs3 - I took the challenge and I made this drawing in 15 minutes using paintbrush. It's flawed but better than his stuff.

And I'm dead serious.

CaptainObvious - 1/15/2013, 1:06 PM
I wonder if Liefeld has ever seen a woman.
BillyM67 - 1/15/2013, 1:11 PM
This looks and sounds stupid.
Jollem - 1/15/2013, 1:27 PM
@monkeyballs3 & CaptainObvious - yeah, he's more miss than hit with me. i have seen him do some solid work at times. i think :)

@Fogs - neato
GhostZillaRider - 1/15/2013, 1:39 PM
The funny thing is, the concept is sound. One could make a truly badass story with that basic plot. Sadly, if Liefield's writing is anything like his art, it's a big steaming pile of manure. Let someone talented get ahold of this idea, write a script for it, and maybe it'll be worth something.
PapaMidnite - 1/15/2013, 1:41 PM
Someone played a lot "Battle of the Gods" in the PC when adolescent... pathetic premiss! By the way, Buddha wasn't a "god"... not even Ra at the first instance.
johnnymarr - 1/15/2013, 2:00 PM
Epic pile of crap!
SupLezz - 1/15/2013, 2:00 PM
This is what a woman looks like to Liefeld.... seriously guys this one has all his signature touches except the pouches and big ass guns. Oh and the hidden legs:D "it's too hard to draw legs so let's hide them"
Fogs - 1/15/2013, 2:02 PM
@monkeyballs3 - he should try paintbrush with a mouse :P
AlexDeLarge87 - 1/15/2013, 2:15 PM
the [frick]?
Blackvoid - 1/15/2013, 2:26 PM
Haha stupid liefeld
DukeAcureds - 1/15/2013, 2:41 PM
I nearly didn't come on this article because I thought it would be in bad taste to only click on an article to heckle the guy the article is about.
Heh.
Silly me.
Leifeld sucks ass. His own ass. And he likes it. That is all.
lalosuper3001 - 1/15/2013, 2:48 PM
My only question is: WHERE are they going to find actors with SUPER-TINY FEET????
PapaMidnite - 1/15/2013, 2:48 PM
LMFBO - @JesusChrist! Brilliant username! LOL

@Fogs, hey man - pretty nice sketch!! Paintbrush? Atrocity! There is a great software for sketches called ArtRage, give it a try!
reverendjonnynemo - 1/15/2013, 3:19 PM
You guys might not remember his take on Battlestar Galactica:



Seriously shite doesn't quite say it...
DukeAcureds - 1/15/2013, 3:35 PM
I'm pretty sure every the standard Leifeld face can be done with an emoticon.
