Not quite Expendable
May. 7, 2007
Not all movies based on comics come from the traditional superhero genre -- there's still plenty of worthwhile material out there that might be off the beaten path. Intrepid Pictures managed to find one: THE EXPENDABLE ONE.
The production company scooped up the rights to the loopy Viper Comics graphic novel, and they were wise to do so -- it's a terrifically horrific little gem. The gleefully gory book revolves around an average chump named Twigs, whose science-geek friend creates a flesh-regenerating substance. With his newfound gruesome ability, Twigs finds himself enlisted by a sexy female Fed in pink lingerie to track down a savage serial killer who may in fact be a werewolf.
Intrepid (who also has BALLS OF FURY and THE STRANGERS coming up) has assigned writers Shane Kuhn and Brendan Cowles with bringing Twigs and his ghastly heroics to the screen.
||EXPENDABLE ONE artist Bryan Baugh has worked on storyboards for animated series such as THE BATMAN, JACKIE CHAN ADVENTURES and TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES.
