USA Today has posted an article on “Alien Legion Omnibus” and the possible Alien Legion movie is addressed, with quotes by series creator Carl Potts and series artist Chris Warner. Derek Haas and Michael Brandt are reworking the script for Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney. Here’s an excerpt:
“Alien Legion has been optioned for some time,” Potts confirms. “The script is currently in its third rewrite”…Potts believes Bruckheimer is the type of producer who could do a great job on a film version of Legion. “Bruckheimer’s never done a science-fiction before, so that challenge, I think, is something that would hold his interest. The success they’ve had with blending CGI and live-action characters in The Pirates of the Caribbean series could translate easily to an Alien Legion film.”
Warner also thinks Alien Legion would translate well to film. “Legion is painted on an immense canvas, and today’s effects can really carry that off. The themes and characters have a lot of depth and resonance, and ultimately that’s what storytelling is about. Good stories are always good stories.”
