It looks like everyone's favorite mad man/wizard/comic book writer is moving to a different medium for a little while. Check out this news we just got about a short film project by Alan Moore:
Writer Alan Moore – best known for his groundbreaking graphic novels, which include; "The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen", "From Hell", "V For Vendetta" and "Watchmen" – and director Mitch Jenkins are making a series of short films. Produced by Lex in association with The Creators Project, the occult, noir flecked pieces are Moore’s first work written specifically for the screen and made with his ongoing creative involvement.
The first installment, entitled "Act of Faith", stars Siobhan Hewlett ("Sherlock", "Hotel Babylon", "Torchwood") and was recently shot in London. The second, "Jimmy’s End", will be filmed in Northampton later this summer.
Originally intended as a brief ten-minute, one-off piece, the project has evolved into a multi-layered, multi-episode narrative created by Moore and brought to life by Jenkins. The working title for the overall series is "Show Pieces".
"Act of Faith" and "Jimmy’s End" will be premiered at The Creator’s Project New York event in October 2012, then released via TheCreatorsProject.com, Vice and Intel's digital arts platform featuring original programming from leading filmmakers, musicians, artists and designers.
