Sam Worthington begins quest to make CBM's before they are CB's
Sam Worthington must feel that he's not making enough of that sweet delicious blockbuster coin and he knows what is hot right now - comic books - and movies - oh my. He's started up his own production company called 'Full Clip' (cool name I must admit). His new company's plan as of right now is specializing in knocking out CBMs (Comic Book Movies for those who don't know what link they just clicked). The catch is - the comic books haven't been made yet.
His new production company 'Full Clip' already has movies lined up before the source material goes to print...
So Worthington has a deal with Radical Publishing to get the comic books developed and written so that the movie can be made alongside the source material. Kind of like how Kick-Ass rolled out. And hey - that turned out ok didn't it?
“As a lifelong fan of comics, I'm so excited to have the chance to create material which I can then personally bring to life on screen," Worthington said.
As of right now Worthington is working with Radical Publishing on The Last Days of the American Crime. After that a description of another comic book/movie in development called Damaged has been revealed via Heat Vision and quoted as below:
“centers on two brothers committed to justice in different ways -- one inside the law, one violently beyond it. Now with the end of their careers approaching, they must train their replacements, hoping to remake them in their image. But the vigilante code has changed and the brothers are left unprepared for the true lawlessness and corruption that is about to be unleashed.”
John and Michael Schwarz are Worthington's partners behind Full Clip and David Lapham is going to be writing the comic Damaged while it also gets developed as a film. Lapham is an acclaimed comic book writer behind the vicious Stray Bullets and new ultraviolent Crossed:Family Values - which he took over from Garth Ennis' first run.
