Voices of the Syndicate: Want to turn a comic/book into a film

9 Sep, 2011

This edition of Voices of the Syndicate tell us which book or comic they would most like to head to the big screen or tv and why. Liz: I would love to see someone take on Fables and do it well. Similarly, I would love to see someone take on Northlanders and cast solid actors and do great things with it.  The series is so superb.  It would even work as a TV Series, with each Volume being given a series or at least an 8 episode arc. Matt P: I’d love to see the “in her name” series adapted in to a franchise of films. i recently picked up the first three books on kindle and have been reading through them every night. They are about a war between Humans and a race knows as the Kreelans. The main character is a Human called Raza who is kidnapped by the Kreelans as a child and raised as part of experiment to see if humans have souls. Jack: The Left 4 Dead comic as that is one of the few games that i’ve seen be work when changed into a comic, but i’m not sure if that counts. Montoya: I would love to see Alpha Flight as a film. This group of Canadian superheroes are so unique and quirky that they would be great on screen. As for books I would say either the Honor Harrington series or the Seafort saga by  David Feintuch. Both are good hard SF military space saga’s. Amaechi: My vote goes to Artemis Fowl. Nothing like a 13 year old evil genius looking to get all the gold he can so he can to rule the world. That will nicely fill the gap now left by the end of the Harry potter series.  Apparently the author Eoin Colfer summed up the series as Die Hard with fairies……..nuff said. Shar: I’d probably want to see the Anita Blake series come to life in some form – whether it be a small screen series or a live action film. Mostly because the focus is on someone other than a vamp, wereanimal or witch! Anita’s a necromancer and that’s something I haven’t seen as...
