Deadline is reporting that J. Michael Straczynski will be penning a new film based on the Valiant comic, Shadowman. This news comes on the heels of reports that Straczynski is also currently developing a scifi television series with the creators of The Matrix. Straczynski seems to have quite the list of projects lately! The creation of a new Shadowman film comes just as a new Shadowman comic is about to hit shelves on November 7th. Here’s the official synopsis of the comic:
There’s a million dreams in the Big Easy. But now its worst nightmare is about to come true. As the forces of darkness prepare to claim New Orleans as their own, Jack Boniface must embrace the legacy he was born to uphold. As Shadowman, Jack is about to become the only thing that stands between his city and an army of unspeakable monstrosities from beyond the night. But is the mantle of Shadowman a blessing or a curse? And what is the true cost of his otherworldly power?
