While up at Comic-Con writer Warren Ellis was mostly talking about the Marvel Anime stuff he is currently working on with Marvel. Now it looks like he is taking on a bigger project, a movie project. I guess he was allowed to talk about it up at Comic-Con but it never came up while talking about the Marvel project so he has announced his new film project through his blog in which he say's:
I'm writing a film treatment for Hollywood Gang, who co-produced Frank Miller's 300. Hollywood Gang have previously optioned my graphic novel (with Chris Sprouse) OCEAN.
On my desk, the treatment is called Untitled Arthurian Project.
On their desk, the project is called EXCALIBUR.
I'm working directly with Gianni Nunnari, Oliver Kramer and Craig Flores (whom I was delighted to bump into on the Warner's lot the other day) and having a great time.
He says he's been sitting on that little bit of information for months now. Well, now that it's all out in the open, sounds pretty cool to me! Warren Ellis also most recent developed that insanley incredible G.I. Joe: Resoulte animated web series. The guy has done some great stuff, so I am really looking forward to see what he can do with a film project based on the legend of King Aurthur. Now I am not sure if this is a remake of the 1981 film or not, but Ellis links the Wikipedia page to it through his blog so maybe it is? What do you all think?
