Warners Bewitched By "The Red Star"

Warner Bros. confirms that Josh Trank ("Chronicle") is now attached to direct the big screen adaptation of Image Comics' "The Red Star".

First Published in 1999, "The Red Star", written and illustrated by Christian Gossett, is set in a sci-fi/fantasy world,
inspired by both Russian folklore and military history, mixing technology and sorcery.

Gossett launched his own Archangel Studios in 2002, to self-publish subsequent issues :

"...an award-winning graphic novel, 'The Red Star' is about an epic battle in a world of militarized sorcery and monolithic technology, where -- unknown to all but a few -- the ghosts of old soldiers continue to fight alongside the living..."

Neal Moritz will produce the new film from an adapted screenplay by Jason Rothenberg.
