Framelight Productions, a new film production company started by Philadelphia area busineesmen Jeffrey D. Erb and Robert L. Robinson, has announced plans to produce six to eight films over the next five years in the $20 to $100 million range.

The first properties optioned by the company include Deadworld, published by Caliber Press and Image Comics, and created by Gary Reed; Renfield, published by Image Comics and created by Reed; 1001 Arabian Nights and Sins Of The Fallen, both published by Zenescope and created by Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco; Kill Zone, to be published by Zenescope in 2009 and created by Robinson; and Dr. Deth With Kip And Muffy, published by Marvel Comics and created by Larry Hama. Another property will be announced soon.

"This is a natural for us," Robinson said. "Our focus is to work in partnership with the creators, in ways Hollywood has rarely ever done. The film Sin City was a great example of the power and intelligence of having the creator as your partner and that's the model we want to follow."

"I'm excited about the focus," Erb said. "The type of stories and characters we went after weave strong mythologies that audiences dive into head first and which creative talent love to bring to life, both in front of and behind the camera."

"It is an amazing opportunity for us to partner with Framelight on this venture and we're thrilled to be a part of this project,"said Tedesco, co-founder of Zenescope Entertainment.

"Deadworld has a big story and one that will play out well on screen," Reed said. "It's funny that after all this time, Deadworld has renewed life with the role playing game, masks, t-shirts, and now the film. Deadworld is much more than a zombie chase concept and it's encouraging to see how Bob and Jeff get what it's about.

"Regarding Renfield, think of all the stories that I have written, Renfield remains one of my favorites. I enjoyed the experience immensely and the artist, Galen Showman, did a great job with it."

"Dr. Deth seems to be a 10-year-old boy who wanders a post-apocalyptic New Jersey on a motorcycle accompanied by two buxom babes named Kip and Muffy," Hama said. "They are armed with a variety of automatic weapons which they employ to blow apart hordes of mutants and other irradiated monstrosities that cross their path. Although symbolism could be read into the concept, it is simply a violent fantasy that should make for a fun movie. I can't wait to see it!²

Bluewater Productions has announced a partnership with actor and author William Shatner that will feature four titles based on his science-fiction novels.

Bluewater's William Shatner Presents franchise will include Shatner's The TekWar Chronicles, Quest for Tomorrow, Man O' War and an exclusive new title that Shatner will create specifically for the publisher.

The comics will showcase storylines that will be continuations of the established plots featured in Shatner's books, as opposed to direct adaptations. Shatner -- best known as Captain Kirk from the Star Trek franchise -- will work directly with Bluewater's writers and artists, along with writer/producer Craig Nevius, to develop the concept and look of the comics.

"Working with Bluewater is a great opportunity to bring these novels to a whole new audience," Shatner said.

"Mr. Shatner is a savvy businessman and a creative mastermind," said Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis. "We're honored to be partnering with him and are confident our efforts will create comic books both his fans and ours will embrace."


NBC has released a decription from "I Am Become Death," the Monday, Oct. 6 episode of Heroes.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Seeing a future where nearly everyone has abilities, a world destined for destruction, Peter resolves to prevent this earth-shattering end -- whatever the cost -- and so takes on a dark, unwieldy ability to save the world -- gambling (wrong) that it wonıt destroy him and everything he loves first.

"After allowing Angelaıs (Cristine Rose) half of 'the formula' to be stolen, Hiro (Masi Oka) and Ando (James Kyson Lee) set out to uncover the identity of the Villain who hired Daphne (guest star Brea Grant) -- and must consult with the person who knows these rogues best...Adam Monroe (guest star David Anders).

"After the bloodbath at the bank, H.R.G. (Jack Coleman) resolves to get rid of his new partner. Meanwhile, determined to be a hero, Claire (Hayden Panettiere) hits the road after one of the Villains from H.R.G.ıs old files. Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) gives in to impulse. Linderman (guest star Malcolm McDowell) and Molly (guest star Adair Tishler) return in unexpected manners. A new romance ignites between two Heroes."
