Spyglass has preemptively purchased a pitch based on the yet-to-be-published online comicstrip Spin, created by Rob Liefeld, reports Variety. Kara Holden is writing the film’s script.
The fantasy comedy in the vein of Bruce Almighty concerns a highly successful single woman whose life is uprooted when a curse is put on her.
Comic creator Liefeld is the co-founder of Image Comics, the third largest publisher in the genre after D.C. and Marvel.
Spin is Liefeld’s third sale in the past year. He sold his sci-fi action comedy Planet Terry to New Line, and The Mark to Paramount. Will Smith is attached to star in the latter.
Let me point out that although Leifeld was co-founder, they FIRED HIM nearly 10 years ago. He then started his own label of comics that were nothing but RIPOFFS of popular books that wouldnt hire him. He had a character that was EXACTLY like Capt America, shield and all… He calls him Fighting American. Apparently this FA was a silver age hero concept that failed and Capt America was a second stab at the concept. But why release the EXACT SAME character again once one is famous? Thats right. You have no talent. I dare any comic fanboy to name a Liefeld concept that isnt a ripoff.
This man has no talent. Why are people STILL giving him work? Do they not realize that EVERYTHING he does turns to poodoo?
