    SAM WORTHINGTON DEVELOPS COMIC BOOK IMPRINTS FOR FUTURE FILM PROJECTS

    I got this article from The Hollywood Reporter and press release material from Radical Studio themselvs. First of all thanks to Radical Publishing for their e-mail on the announcement!


    Back to the story - Apparently Sam Worthington has devoted some of his time outside the fame from Avatar to develop and produce possible future film projects with Radical Studios. The Avatar star along with his partners, Michael Schwarz and John Schwarz in Full Clip Productions will team up with Radical Publishing for comic book imprint deal. Under the agreement, Full Clip Productions will develop the intellectual property to be produced under the Radical banner. It was reported that both Worthington and John Schwarz will star in the film adaptations of selected projects too.




    On the same press release, it was also announced that the first project in development under the imprint will be Damaged. The comic is created by John Schwarz and Michael Schwarz, and written by David Lapham. Damaged tells the story of two brothers who 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 each 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.


    We are thrilled to have Full Clip in the Radical family. An imprint deal of this nature is unprecedented in the industry, and we couldn't ask for better partners than Sam, Michael and John.
    Barry Levine, President of Radical Studios.
    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. This is a great opportunity for my partners and I to work alongside a dynamic company like Radical.

    Damaged is not the only comic series that is currently ready for filming under the Radical banner. Radical Publishing has also announced several key development film projects like:
    • Legends: The Enchanted (Ron Howard and Brian Grazer's Imagine Entertainment set to produce)
    • The Last Days of American Crime (Sam Worthington set to star and produce) Oblivion! (with Tron legacy Joseph Kosinski set to develop)
    • Hercules: The Thracian Wars (Peter Berg is attached to produce and direct and a co-production of Radical Pictures, Spyglass Entertainment, Peter Berg’s company Film 44)
    • Caliber: First Canon of Justice (A co-production of Radical Pictures and Johnny Depp’s production company Infinitum Nihil)
    It is interesting to see how the works of great comics at Radical Publishing will end up in the silver screen someday. Someday, we don't need too much of DC Comics or Marvel Comics as we can look forward for more choices of comic and movie adaptations from Radical. Radical Publishing is founded in 2007 by Barry Levine and Jess Berger and they own over 19 titles in circulation across 7 countries and manage a catalog of over 70 properties and 500 characters.
