Studio grab graphic novel two weeks after it was released.
Prefer your comic book adaptions to go easy on the superhero side of things? Rather see your hero get mad and throw a glass than turn green and throw an ambulance at someone? Then you might be in luck with The Sculptor, an interesting tale by Scott McCloud that has just been snatched up by Sony to make a transfer to the big screen just after two weeks of it hitting bookshelves.
It?s worth noting that The Sculptor isn?t some famous story loved by all. In fact, the book only hit shelves two weeks ago and is also McCloud?s first work of fiction in a whopping 20 years. Thankfully, the tale has already been met with critical acclaim with readers praising the story with its perspective on its two biggest factors; creativity and love.
It sounds like an interesting story and one I may have to pick up some time soon. As for the adaptation, expect the choice of director and cast to hopefully take more time than a fortnight, and hopefully enough time for me to read the damn thing.
