July solicitations -- and much more!


DreamWorks Studios has optioned the feature-film rights for Platinum Studios' comic book Atlantis Rising, it was announced on Wednesday by Adam Goodman, President of Production for DreamWorks Studios.

Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who brought the project to the studio, will produce through their DreamWorks-based company. Platinum Studios Chairman and CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg will also produce. The Greenberg Group CEO and former Universal Pictures senior executive Randy Greenberg will executive produce and Platinum Studios Rich Marincic will co-produce.

Created by Rosenberg, Atlantis Rising iss a five-part mini series first published by Platinum Studios Comics in November of 2007. The fifth and final installment in the series is due on comic book shelves in late April.

In Atlantis Rising, seismic disturbances at sea force world militaries to investigate the deepest part of our ocean, where an underground civilization emerges to do war with planet earth.

Atlantis Rising marks the second property that DreamWorks has optioned from Platinum Studios. DreamWorks, along with Universal Studios, optioned the rights to Cowboys and Aliens last year and is currently developing the sci-fi western adventure along with Kurtzman and Orci and Imagine Entertainment.

"We are excited about bringing audiences into the vast mysterious world of the ocean's depths for what we hope will be an edge-of-your seat experience," Goodman said. "Our team at DreamWorks looks forward to this new association with Platinum Studios, and Kurtzman and Orci."

"Atlantis Rising is a provocative sci-fi thriller that at its core, echoes the global debate on our impact to the environment," said Rosenberg. "To again be working with the creative duo of DreamWorks and Kurtzman/Orci, I believe will give the project a bold and enthralling take on this classic myth."

"No sea horses or tridents here," said producers Kurtzman and Orci, "The comic brings a fresh, techno-thriller approach to a story that holds all the tenets of a classic us-versus-them alien invasion movie."


Stan Lee and his POW! Entertainment, along with Brighton Partners, have joined with Rainmaker Entertainment to launch the new superhero property Legion of 5, it was announced on Wednesday by Warren Franklin, CEO of Rainmaker.

Rainmaker, a CG animation producer, will develop and produce the feature-length films.

The property, owned jointly by Rainmaker, POW! and Brighton, will initially be launched through a series of CG animated films, supported by traditional and electronic comics, games, merchandising, and online and mobile releases.

"What a kick to be partnered with the top CG animation company in the biz!" Lee said. "I can't wait to have Rainmaker take my newest set of superheroes and work their animated magic on them. Between Rainmaker and POW! we hope to offer the public a visually exciting, thrill-a-minute, new type of entertainment that'll knock the viewers' socks off!"

The three companies will be together at this weekend's New York Comic Con, where Stan Lee will receive the inaugural New York Comics Legend Award at a special VIP party at the Virgin Megastore in Times Square.
