Tobey feels Afterburn

03.26.2008
We don't know if Tobey Maguire will spin his webby wrist-jizz again as SPIDER-MAN, but he's still perusing the comic book shelves.

Peter Parker's alter-ego will produce and presumably star in an adaptation of the new comic series AFTERBURN, from Red 5 Comics. Cacophony craftsman Neal Moritz (XXX, FAST AND THE FURIOUS) will also produce, practically ensuring overkill visuals and crap-rock soundtrack.

The post-apocalyptic story is set some time after a massive solar flare has charred the planet, and treasure hunters take advantage of the situation to seek priceless artifacts like the Mona Lisa and Crown Jewels (and food, one imagines).

The project marks another instance of the online community getting closer to the movie biz -- the comic is written by Paul Ens and Scott Chitwood (TheForce.net and ComingSoon.net). Huzzah!
Extra Tidbit: Don't be surprised if Red 5's book ATOMIC ROBO is the next to get snapped up for feature treatment...
