Just read this from Channelnewsasia (25 Mar 09):
The movie version of the comic series, "Freedom Formula: Ghost of the Wasteland", marks the first time a Singapore-produced story has been signed on for development with a major production studio.Link
US-based New Regency has bought the rights for development and the film – about futuristic slave racers competing in extreme high speed races for entertainment – will be distributed by Fox.
Co-producing the film will be the director of "X-Men" and "Superman Returns", Bryan Singer, in a tie-up with Los Angeles-based Radical Pictures.
Barry Levine, founder of Radical Pictures, said: "This was created for the Asian market. At the end of the day, if the character translates into a universal market, then we adapt it.
"If Edmund had given us something that was good but didn't translate properly, we wouldn't have done this. I think it has a shot to be a huge blockbuster. It is a film that appeals to everyone."
Speaking of Singapore-based comic strips, here's a recently launched online comic strip called "Two-Handed Tales" by RocketRayGun and Jonrob.
Here's another of my favourite Singapore-based comic strip/ illustrator blogger, Bounce Back To Life.
Who says Singapore no talent?
