Producer Jeffrey Erb and entrepreneur Robert Robinson Jr. have launched the shingle with options on several properties, including the Marvel Comics tale “Dr. Deth With Kip and Muffy” from “G.I. Joe” author Larry Hama. Framelight plans to produce six to eight films during the next five years in the $20 million-$80 million range, focusing on strong stories with powerful characters.
Other projects on the slate include Gary Reed’s Caliber Press and Image Comics zombie series “Deadworld” and the supernatural thriller “Sins of the Fallen” and classic tale “1001 Arabian Nights” from Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco’s Zenescope Entertainment. Framelight intends to add video game and toy properties to its list of future film adaptations.
