Paramount and Platinum Dunes Bringing Us Existence 2.0 Adaptation





Another graphic novel adaptation is on the way ... this time from Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes! Are you ready for a look at another man's Existence 2.0?

According to the official Image Comics website, Miles Millar and Alfred Gough -- the team behind The WB's eternally popular "Smallville" -- are adapting Existence 2.0 for the big screen. Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller's Platinum Dunes is set to produce along with Circle of Confusion's David Alpert.

"Existence 2.0 was originally a three-issue miniseries published by Image Comics, written by Nick Spencer (Forgetless, Shuddertown), and drawn by Ronald Salas. The series focuses on self-absorbed physicist Sylvester Baladine. After Baladine's assassination, Baladine finds his consciousness transferred to the body of the hitman who killed him. Things don't seem so bad until the people who "killed" Baladine kidnap his daughter. Baladine is forced to dig up his past to solve his own murder, making himself a target once more."

"EXISTENCE 2.0 is a cinematic book, so translation to the screen is only natural," explains Shadowline Publisher Jim Valentino. "We're excited to see this critically acclaimed title make the leap from page to screen, and the adaptation couldn't be in better hands."

Look for more soon!

It's not a remake.
And it's from Platinum Dunes.
Amazing.

Don't get too excited. Let's not forget about their last original film, Horsemen ... although I certainly would like to! *shudder*

Horsemen wasn't good, true... but that just means they can remake it in 7 to 10 years and they already have the rights.

I look at it this way: Every original property PD focuses on might be one less horror classic they violate up the metaphorical ass.

Wow so their original movies suck, and their remakes suck. And yet they're allowed to go on. Amazing.

Horseman was such a wasted opportunity and was either directed by someone who is bi-polar or it was two different directors with very different ideas on what the movie was supposed to be.
