I haven't heard of The Piper comic book until now, but even for a comic book it sounds pretty cheesy. I can only imagine how it will look on the big screen. I think this little production has "Bomb" written all over it.
Run! The Piper is going to utterly destroy you with his magic flute of death! Ahhhh!
THR reports that Persistent Entertainment, Pantry Films and Zenescope Entertainment are teaming up to produce an adaptation of Zenescope's comic book.
The story takes a darker modern look at the classic Pied Piper of Hamelin tale. Here's a description of the comic:
Seven hundred years ago he took a horrifying revenge and paid the ultimate price for his sins. Now he's returned to forge a deal that will cost more than your life.
Present day Florida, a prestigious boarding academy where a musically gifted but misunderstood high school student named Sean stumbles upon a mysterious book that will give him the ability to finally get back at those who have wronged him the last few years. But when Sean realizes exactly what he has summoned, he knows that the price of revenge is certainly not worth the trouble... It's time to pay the Piper!
Yeah, ummm I really don't think this one is going to do very well, but I could be wrong. Like I said, I haven't read the comic, but it doesn't really sound that interesting to me at all. Unless they make it a comedy I don't think it will work out.
What do you all think?
