According to Deadline, Lionel Wigram has repeated the steps he took with Robert Downey Jr.'s Sherlock Holmes by tapping into a graphic novel and turning it into a film. This time he's turned to Jeff Smith's RASL, which is now en route to becoming a Warner Bros. feature.

RASL is an ex-military scientist-turned-art thief who jumps to parallel universes to steal treasured pieces of art. During these trips, he gets discovered by his former employer, and finds himself trying to protect the world's most dangerous secret."

This is a series I've been meaning to get into for a while. Really like the concept behind it.

Aaron Eckhart is teasing that he might appear in TDKR...someone should make an article about that. It's over on movieweb.com right now. He "jokes" about being in a flashback scene. Could be part of that 'rumor machine' that Nolan does on purpose... but that would be friggen cool!

oh, this seems cool btw. Never read but I will check it out.
