Hugh Jackman and Marc Guggenheim Develop Comic
Apparently playing Wolverine has given Hugh Jackman a taste for comic books, as the actor just announced his production company is developing a new comic series with Virgin Comics.
Nowhere Man is planned as a potential comic, movie and video game, according to an article in Variety.
Story was being kept under wraps, but Jackson’s Seed Productions partner John Palermo said it features a protagonist reminiscent of the one Will Smith played in "I Am Legend." The concept is a futuristic world where mankind has traded privacy for safety, a premise that sprouted with Seed, Virgin CEO Sharad Devarajan and chief creative officer Gotham Chopra.
"This is our first comic, and we feel the concept is transferable to other arenas, perhaps first as a videogame, and then a movie," Palermo said.
Writing duties and "co-creator" status go to Marc Guggenheim, who has written Wolverine, coincidentally enough, as well as several other comics series.
