Tarantino To Give Marvel Character A Head Start

May 3, 2002 at 6:32 pm by xoanon  - 

From IMDB: Quentin Tarantino is dusting off another Marvel comic-book character, Mort the Dead Teenager, who was originally created with a movie version in mind, Roger Friedman of reported Wednesday. Larry Hama, who wrote the four issues of the Mort series, told Friedman that when he was at Marvel, “I thought we should come up with some new characters who could be turned into movie characters.” Unfortunately, he said, the Mort comics — about a teenager who was decapitated in a train accident — were regarded by Marvel as “too dark and too hip,” went out of print, and became a cult classic. The film will likely be directed by Dean Paraskevopoulos and star Elijah Wood in the title role, Friedman said. Tarantino and partner Lawrence Bender’s A Band Apart Productions will coproduce the movie with Madonna’s Maverick Films; Dimension/Miramax will distribute.
