Rodriguez is Madman


Madman news article pic I don't know much about Mike Allred's comic Madman but judging from the picture to the right, Madman's packing a disturbingly huge package. Is that part of his super power or something? The guy's giant piece aside, we haven't really heard much from Robert Rodriguez' adaptation of this comic. Yes, we all know Rodriguez and Frank Miller are doing some sweet shit with SIN CITY but what of MADMAN? Well, thanks to Charles, we know a little bit more as he's pointed us to a lengthy interview Allred did with Newsarama where he mentioned how the movie was progressing. The highlights of what Allred mentioned are below.

"Robert has made a multi-picture deal with Miramax/ Dimension and Madman is a part of that. In fact, Robert convinced them that the best way to make a comic book movie is to have the creators co-direct the films. Frank [Miller] is way ahead of me on every level and it should surprise no one that my little comic book project would take a back seat to his. In addition, Frank wrote his screenplay years and years ago but turned back to comics when the situation didn't sit right and turned his back on Hollywood. I actually hooked Robert up with Frank and Bob Schreck who helped convince Frank that Robert is a great guy and could be trusted to make a Sin City film the way Frank would want with him co-directing…"

"So, at this time George Huang, a long time friend of Robert's and writer-director of the indy hit Swimming With Sharks is writing the Madman treatment based on the outline Robert and I put together. So, when that's approved we kick into the screenplay and if approved shoot the movie. We already have our Frank "Madman" Einstein; He’s star of 2003’s biggest money maker…"
