Platinum Studios and producer Tony Krantz are getting ready to develop a live-action film based on the gaphic novel, Mal Chance. Krantz has produced the hit TV series 24 and David Lynch's Mulholland Drive. Scott Murphy will write the script he has recently been working on the Star War: The Clone Wars animated series.

I haven't read Mal Chance yet but it doesn't really sound like anything special. It tells the story of Lola, part of an ancient clan of assassins targeted for death by a powerful gangster. Her only recourse is to bring down the gangster's entire operation with the help of an honest FBI agent who is unaware of her true identity.

It just seems like we've been there done that. But again I haven't read it so, I don't know for sure. If you have read it, please tell us what you thought of the comic. The producer said that Mal Chance is a "wonderfully visual world steeped with contemporary and complex characters, all playing on the edge of life and death decisions."

As of right now Platinum studios has their Cowboy and Aliens comic book being turned into a movie at DreamWorks with Robert Downey Jr. set to star and Jon Favreau set to direct. Among other film projects, Platinum is developing Unique at Walt Disney Pictures with producer David Heyman and Atlantis Rising with DreamWorks, Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci and director Len Wiseman.
