By saying it's early you assume that something wasn't already put into place. Marketing tactics are changing all the time - it's entirely possible that it was a movie pitch that they decided to turn into a comic.
Mark Millar said:Uh, just because only one issue of the book has appeared so far doesn't mean that's all the producers have seen. That's hilarious. I can give no comment on this yet, but rest assured that the entire plot is already written and even some of Kick-*** 2 is already done and dusted. When this movie happens, it's going to be one of the most faithful adaptations seen since Sin City. Again, I stress I make no comment on this rumour, but I've worked very, very closely with the producer and director on any plans you'll be hearing soon.
This happens a lot.Could be. But in the end its a comic being turned into a movie (according to the rumor), with only one issue of said comic released.
And considering the amount of behind the scenes material released with the first issue, it seems to always be planned as a comic written by Millar and drawn by Romita.
This happens a lot.
Like Project said (and Millar), we've seen only one issue, but remember all the scripts are complete, so the producers and whoever else have seen the completed material.
They're not gonna wait issue for issue as it hits the stand to see what happens. :wink:
I don't see how so. I mean, it's just like pitching an original movie (remember that Hollywood?!).I'm not disputing that. I'm just saying that from where I'm standing, however much of the plot the producers may or not be privy to, it seems very premature to get into the whole movie realm. I understand they do things differenty now with multi-media and the properties utilizing the different media forms, but to jump into something without any (or hardly any) previous exposure seems like a dangerous business move.

It's only a four-issue story? I may be able to read this sooner than I thought if they do a trade soon enough after it ends.
Dude, that is so alacrity.Christ. This kind of alacrity of turnover makes me think we're talking about a fast food chain.
Michael Crichton's Disclosure was optioned as a film close to a year before it actually got published.
