Early Details on Rubicon from Relativity and Atlas

"Revenge Thriller" -- two words that can mean horror or just an action-packed heavy drama, but considering the pedigree of the people involved in the recently announced Rubicon, we thought we'd pass on the info just in case it leans more toward the former than the latter.

It’s been a very long time since we heard about any progress of the film version of the Boom! Studios’ Tag comic, so its fortunate that the guys over at BD’s Graphic Content got their hands on some news this weekend.
