JMS Writing Valiant Comics Shadowman Movie

Body

2523 Valiant Entertainment and the producer of The Mummy, Sean Daniel, have struck a deal with J. Michael Straczynksi to bring Shadowman to the big screen.

Deadline has the news in that Valiant, Daniel and JMS are teaming up for a Shadowman live-action film, with JMS writing the script.

Shadowman is a popular comic book character from the '90s and is being rebooted by Valiant Comics this November by writer Justin Jordan.

"Shadowman is a character who lives in a unique world that mixes the modern world with that which is most ancient within us,” Straczynski tells Deadline. “The New Orleans vibe and history, and the struggle to find a balance with the personality within him, is a perfect dramatic vehicle. We’ve already finished the outline and there’s a lot of action, much of it unique to what Shadowman can do…but at the core of it, there’s a strong character, world and mythology that can be explored across multiple subsequent films. This is gonna be fun."
