Web guys do El Zombo

Kevin Munroe (TMNT) has signed on to direct EL ZOMBO FANTASMA, an adaptation of the best-selling Dark Horse comic of the same name. Described as a Hispanic Hellboy, the film follows a murdered Mexican wrestler who bargains his way out of an eternity of fiery damnation by returning to Los Angeles to play guardian angel to a troublesome teen, Belisa Montoya. He soon discovers that the teen is not what she seems and that their fates have been intertwined for centuries. What's most exciting about this news is that the film will be produced by two guys you might be familiar with - Robert Sanchez of IESB.net and Kellvin Chavez of Latino Review. I've known both of these guys for a while and they're both enthusiastic, passionate and smart about their movies so I'm excited to see what they have up their sleeve. Munroe, who co-created the comic with David Wilkins, will begin work writing the script. So far no release date is set.

Extra Tidbit: Just wait until I announce my deal to produce a big-budget action flick based on "The Golden Girls."
