The New West

The banner previously put their support behind the comic book adaptation A History of Violence staring Viggo Mortensen, and now Benderspink is throwing their weight around the comic book world again, but this time with company. Heat Vision has word that Benderspink and Gareb Shamus, the founder of Wizard Magazine, have teamed up to option the rights to Black Bull Media's comic book property The New West for a film adaptation. The two-issue story is set in a near-future Los Angeles where an electromagnetic pulse bomb has caused all technology to stop working. That means our generation is dead in a week. More below!

Our hero is a disgraced former LAPD detective who must rescue a kidnapped mayor with only a horse and a sword. Sounds like there's the potential for a great post-apocalyptic flick here. No director or writer is attached to the project yet though, so there's no telling what we can expect from this adaptation. The comic hails from writer Jimmy Palmiotti and artist Phil Noto, and it doesn't sound like the two are involved in any producing capacity, but they could still be brought in as creative consultants. Side note: Black Bull is the publishing hand of Wizard Entertainment, so Shamus' interest in the property hitting theaters is clear.
