Arcana Studios Developing Adaptation of Paradox

December 21, 2008

Paradox Comic

The newly formed Arcana Studios is developing a total of five films based on various Arcana comics. The first up will be the sci-fi thriller Paradox, which will star Kevin Sorbo and be directed by Brenton Spencer, of TV shows like "Stargate: Atlantis" and "Earth: Final Conflict" previously. Sorbo will play a homicide cop on a parallel Earth ruled by magic who investigates a series of murders committed by previously unseen means - the power of science. Christos Gage and Ruth Fletcher Gage (of The Breed and "Law & Order: SVU" previously) wrote the screenplay based on Arcana's 3-issue limited series also written by Christos Gage.

In addition to Paradox, Arcana is also developing adaptations of Chopper, a thriller based on a Martin Shapiro comic that will start shooting next month, and Sundown, a western vampire thriller, based on a Jay Busbee comic, which is scheduled for an April or May start. No word on whether these films will end up appearing in theaters, on TV, or straight-to-DVD, although I'm guessing it's one of the latter two. We previously wrote about Arcana's Gearhead being picked up by producer Gale Anne Hurd. Grunts has also been making the rounds in Hollywood, although it hasn't officially been picked up by any studio yet.
