I just woke up, so I’m going to quote from The Hollywood Reporter right now. (Reuters also have the story, as does AICN) Obviously, it’s going to be one of those days:
Summit Entertainment is entering the comic book adaptation business, picking up the movie rights to WildStorm/DC Comics’ "Red."
The project marks the first time that a DC Comics title is leaving parent company Time Warner’s fold.
The book was written by Warren Ellis, whose comic "Ocean" is set up at Warner Bros., and illustrated by Cully Hamner.
As ever, I was represented in the deal by Angela Cheng Caplan of the Cheng Caplan Company.
