Movie News

Adding to the ever-growing slate of comic books being snapped up by Hollywood for film and TV adaptations is Archaia property LUCID, written by TRUE BLOOD’s Michael McMillian.

Warner Bros. have snagged this one, with Academy Award winner (and BATMAN & ROBIN writer) Akiva Goldsman sharing producing duties with actor turned producer Zachary Quinto (STAR TREK). For those of us unfamiliar with LUCID, here’s Archaia’s official synopsis for the four-issue mini-series:

'Welcome to the world of LUCID, the action-packed pop-fantasy that draws inspiration from the spy genre, Arthurian legend and 21st-century folklore! Dark forces are conspiring to prevent humankind from reaching its true potential. Thankfully, as newly appointed “Protector of the Realm,” Agent Matthew Dee uses his skills as a covert spy and Combat Mage to ensure America’s freedom from the grip of evil.'

Sounds good to us!

It's early days yet of course, but we’ll have more on this as it develops…
