Paramount Reportedly goes Forward with ‘Torso’
CHUD quotes one of their readers, who e-mailed the news that Paramount Pictures has exercised their option to Brian Michael Bendis’ Torso. As reported last week, the studio had until the 15th to act or let the material, now called Ness, go elsewhere.
Eric Cordo emailed the site to say, “Todd McFarlane was just on the Bubba the Love Sponge show (sorry to out you as a Bubba the Love Sponge listener, Eric) saying that the film has been greenlit.”
CHUD went on to report, “budgeting is happening right now as we speak. But that isn’t quite the same thing as a green light, and it’s important to note that while this film is off the brink of dissolution (if it even was there in the first place), it’s not exactly ready to go before the cameras. But now it’s in a good position, and Paramount is apparently pretty gung ho about it.”
