Bluewater Productions announced today that they’ve partnered with Pleroma Entertainment, an independent motion picture production company, to bring to the screen both Insane Jane and Tom Corbett: Space Cadet. Both have been optioned for development as feature films.
Insane Jane, named for its crazed, mentally unstable heroine, is Bluewater’s superhero horror comic book and is officially described as follows:
Take youthful energy. Add in some over-active imagination. Mix in some powdered donuts. Sprinkle it with delusional disorder and you get … Insane Jane! The kookiest action hero of the 21st century. Will Jane save the day? Will Jane destroy the world? Will she remember to take her medication?
Tom Corbett: Space Cadet, meanwhile, is based on the novel series by Carey Rockwell:
Starring a movie-ready hero who harkens back to the retro space heroes of the 1950s! Juggling schoolwork, cadet training and saving the world, Tom is on the adventure of his life in his new adventures. The Corbett comic book was transformed earlier this year into an audio drama on Sirius/XM with Colonial Radio Theatre.
“We could not be more thrilled to team up with Pleroma Entertainment. ‘Insane Jane’ and ‘Tom Corbett: Space Cadet’ are two comic books that we thought would make great properties for film and television when we created them,” said Darren Davis, President of Bluewater Productions.
“The partnership between Bluewater and Pleroma presents an opportunity for us to produce two, if not more, of Bluewater’s most popular books as feature films. It is a partnership that I have personally looked forward too for many years and it is a good thing for both companies. Together, we are going to make great things happen,” said Ray Brown, CEO and producer of Pleroma.
Bluewater also has film projects set up with Universal Studios and Paramount Pictures and other studios for their titles Nanny & Hank, Legend of Isis, 10th Muse, and Sinbad Rogue of Mars.
