THE WEEK BEFORE SDCC: HOLLYWOOD DAZE
What ever happened to the Ridley Scott’s film adaptation of Mind MGMT? Today news came out through the Hollywood Reporter that Dark Horse and Universal Cable Production were working on developing several Dark Horse titles for the small screen – the first being The Umbrella Academy. Universal Cable Production is a company owned by NBC Universal.
Another title that UCP and Dark Horse are adapting for TV is Matt Kindt’s Mind MGMT – being adapted by Dan Cerone. Cerone developed Constantine for the CW and was a show runner for The Black List. While sales of Mind MGMT have dwindled in the last few months on the secondary market this news should make the book see a rebound in completed sale prices. Mind MGMT first appeared in Matt Kindt’s 3 Story as a 8 page preview. There is also a 1 in 3 variant cover for Mind MGMT #1.
Another piece of news from that same THR article says UCP is also developing the 215 INK series, Flutter for the small screen. Flutter was originally released as a graphic novel in 2013 by 215 INK and had two successful kickstarter campaigns that funded Volume 2 and Volume 3. Flutter is about a girl that shape shifts into a boy so she can try to win the affections of a girl.
