Big Screen Adap Of Jim Starlin's DREADSTAR In The Works
"I am a memory from the planet Caldor. I am death". THR report that Benderspink and Illuminati Entertainment are developing a movie adaptation of Jim Starlin's Dreadstar, the cult '80s Marvel/Epic comic series. Click on for more..
There's a Dreadstar movie coming our way! Although he may be before many of our CBMers time, the adventures of Vanth Dreadstar and his motley crew made for a cracking sci-fi read. Jim Starlin (co-creator of the likes of Thanos, Drax the Destroyer and Gamora) created the character in the '80s for Marvel's Epic Illustrated, but his popularity soon led to his own series. The stories followed Vanth and his pals Syzygy Darklock, Willow and a cat-man called Oedi as they battled the forces of the Church of The Instrumentality. Says Benderspink's J.C. Spink of the acquisition: "Apart from Star Wars, this was my favorite science fiction story growing up. Dreadstar is one of the most important comics on the 1980s, paving the way for creators to control their own creations. After decades of Jim exercising that control and turning away countless Hollywood suitors, I'm excited he's trusting me to do it right." What do you guys (those that have even heard of the series!) think?
