Movie Adaptation Of Martin Shapiro's CHOPPER On The Way
We've already had a 9 ep web series starring Tyler Mane, but now it seems that marketing and branded entertainment company Dilemma are moving forward with a feature adaptation of the horror comic series. More details after the jump..
Variety report that a movie adaptation - described as a modern take on Sleepy Hollow - of Martin Shapiro's Chopper is in the works from Dilemma, who also produced the prequel web series starring Tyler Mane and Andrew Bryniarski. The comic tells the story of a supernatural headless biker named The Reaper, who seeks vengeance in the afterlife. There are beheadings, motorcycles, drug-peddling cheerleaders - all that lovely stuff. "Ultimately, the neverending viability of the horror genre combined with the exploding interest in shows like 'Sons of Anarchy' made my decision to bring our title character to life a no-brainer -- pardon the pun," said the writer/director of the web series, and the man who will work on the script for the movie with Shapiro, J.C. Christofilis.
