Marcus Nispel Is The Chosen One
Chosen to remake every movie. Chosen to wear orange. Chosen to make things gritty. Chosen to drop the ball on even the simplest of concepts. Chosen to use lens flares at a relentless pace. And now, chosen to create comic books.
According to Deadline Marcus Nispel, whose Conan the Barbarian reboot opens today, has made a deal with Liquid Comics to launch the comic book series The Chosen.
The plotline involves a Detroit kid who seems an unlikely candidate but who is the latest incarnate of an Eastern spiritual master whose tradition goes back generations. The teen awakens to these awesome powers that have been refined over a century's worth of incarnations and begin to manifest themselves, taking him on a journey from the Detroit streets to the underground gangland of Mumbai. Nispel created the storyline with Liquid co-founders Gotham Chopra and Sharad Devarajan. It's based on an original movie treatment that Nispel has been developing to direct.
The three-issue comic series will launch in February.
