Hollywood Daze: Jackpot Sony Film

.
While there have been rumbling over the past few weeks that Sony and Marvel were working on a female focused film within the Sony-Spider-Man universe I am very surprised by today’s development.

Deadline is reporting that Marc Guggenheim is writing the script to an upcoming “Jackpot” film based in the Spider-verse universe. Marc Guggenheim has also signed on to write the upcoming Rob Liefeld Prophet adaptation for Studio 8.

The Jackpot character first appeared in the 2007 Free Comic Book Day Marvel offering, Spider-Man: Swing Shift. There have been two incarnations of this character and this book features the very first appearance of the character – Sara Ehret – a scientist who works at a subsidiary company of Oscorp. The FCBD was later reprinted and published as a special “directors cut”.

The second version of Jackpot was Alana Jobson who appeared in Marvels Secret Invasion event. Jobson made her first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #546.

While there has been no clear indication of which character Sony plans to use I think both of these are great books to start looking for. As more news comes out about this project these books will only continue to see an increase of interest.
