TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE and FRIDAY THE 13TH director Marcus
Nispel has another reboot out today with CONAN, and the filmmaker has just
announced that he’s made a deal
with Liquid Comics to launch the comic book series THE CHOSEN.
Deadline reports that THE CHOSEN’s story centers on a Detroit teen who is the latest
incarnate of an Eastern spiritual master whose tradition goes back generations,
and whose powers begin to manifest themselves and take him on a journey from
the Detroit streets to the underground gangland of Mumbai. Nispel created the
storyline with Liquid co-founders Gotham Chopra and Sharad Devarajan. It’s
based on an original movie treatment that Nispel has been developing to direct.
The three-issue comic series will launch in February.
“I like movies that turn into graphic novels and graphic
novels that turn into movies,” Nispel said in a statement. “Everything I direct
starts with illustrations, and the pictures tell the story.”
“Marcus’ vision of a muscled-up KUNG FU has been something
I’ve loved since the moment he first told me the story,” Chopra said. “The
master-apprentice narrative from King Arthur to John Connor is a formula that works,
and with Marcus onboard something wildly creative is emerging.”
