DARREN DAVIS TALKS ISIS MOVIE, COMIC BOOK
Legend of Isis comic book creator Darren Davis told The Continuum that he is pleased with the recently announced deal with Paramount-based Grammnet Prods. to develop the property in live-action form.
Grammnet Prods. is headed by Kelsey Grammer, who won an Emmy Award on Sunday night for the final season of Frasier.
"Ali Russell is a great writer and I am so happy with the take she for the Legend of Isis film," Davis said. "Brooklyn and Daniel (Alter), who I have been working with this for a while, have been really supportive of this property."
Russell, 21, recently moved to Los Angeles to pursue screenwriting and was scouted by Weaver out of the UCLA writing program.
"I'm excited to bring Darren's Isis character to life, as I see her as a female Peter Parker who's awkward and still reeling from the death of her mother a year before," Russell said. "I'm grateful for Grammnet and Paramount for believing in me, and can't wait to start writing˛
"Blue Water Productions is my new company that I have formed in developing new properties for both comic book and entertainment," Davis said. "I have been working with great creators like Ryan Scott Ottney, Debbie Bishop and Maggie Feeney on some new stuff."
Davis said The Legend of Isis graphic novel will be released in January, "with a lot of new stuff in it." A new series from Angel Gate will launch in the second quarter, and a one-shot called the 10th Muse: Book of Lights in November will also feature Isis.
Davis said that there are plans for 10th Muse.
"We have a film treatment for 10th Muse getting written, because a couple studios have showed some interest in that property as well," he said.
Alex Amezuca is drawing the 10th Muse comic, and Davis said there will be more news about the property soon.
