John Cox, screenwriter of the Sgt. Rock movie, told The Continuum there could be some movement soon on the film.

"Hopefully, we'll go into production this year," he said at last weekend's Wizard World Los Angeles. "I finished the script about a year ago, and I just heard some good news."

Sgt. Rock is set up at Warner Bros., with Joel Silver producing. Silver has been developing the property for many years, with actors such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis being rumored in various incarnations.

Why would Sgt. Rock make a good movie?

"It's a fantastic World War 2 action/adventure with a great character," Cox told The Continuum. "It's much less Saving Private Ryan and more The Guns of Navarone."

DC Comics' next Sgt. Rock project will be Sgt. Rock: The Lost Battalion, a six-issue mini-series by Billy Tucci. DC's Dan DiDio told The Continuum it will launch in connection with Veteran's Day in November.



Marvel Studios has entered into its first basic cable distribution relationship for its self-produced movies through an agreement with FX.

Under the terms of the five-picture deal, Marvel Studios will provide FX with the rights to five of the studio's upcoming feature films including this summer's Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, with the remaining films to be named by Marvel.

The pact also includes significant FX marketing commitments in support of each film's theatrical release.

David Maisel, chairman of Marvel Studios, and Chuck Saftler, executive vice president of FX Networks made the announcement on Monday.

The agreement with FX does not include broadcast television rights, Canadian rights or the second free TV window.
