Witchblade the Movie?

Witchblade, the movieAh, God, here we go again. Someone out there wants to bring Witchblade to the big screen, though I really can’t understand the enduring popularity of this comic.

Variety reports that Top Cow, Arclight and Platinum Studios are working together on a new live-action Witchblade film, the story of a jewel-encrusted gauntlet that grants powers to its wearer, a specially chosen female from each generation.

They’re looking at locations in Australia now, with a hope to get production rolling by September. I never saw the “Witchblade” TV movie or the series it spawned, but to me it always looked really silly. Hopefully the film will be true to the comic, which to date’s sold more than 100 million copies and been translated into 21 languages.

And by “true to the comic”, I mean featuring a super hot scantily clad lead, of course…

    Everything I’ve seen of Witchblade has been lame thus far. The Tomb Raider crossover, the TV series, and the anime. Blech.
