Myriad Pictures has signed a first-look deal with comic book creator Studio 407 for feature-length live-action films.
Under the pact, Myriad also has the option to use Studio 407 to supervise the development and production of graphic novels or comic books based on Myriad properties.
Launched a year ago, Studio 407 is based in Bangkok and the U.S. and run by managing director Alex Leung. As part of the Myriad deal, Studio 407’s U.S. staff will work out of Myriad’s Santa Monica offices.
Studio 407 will launch a debut slate of comics in early 2008 that includes titles “Tiger and Crane,” “Night and Fog” and “Hybrid.”
