Samuel L. Jackson writing Cold Space for BOOM! [Updated]

New_Series_Teaser

BOOM! Studios sent over this teaser image tonight without any explanation as to what it was for … but it looks like another movie adaptation. I went through Samuel L. Jackson’s IMDB page, but nothing really jumped out at me.

Maybe Shaft? Snakes on a Plane? Coach Carter? What do you think?

Update: So apparently it isn’t an adaptation … BOOM! confirmed what eagle-eyed Evan Meadow posted in the comments section, that Samuel L. Jackson is writing an original miniseries for BOOM!:

Shaft meets Blade?

Nick Fury on a Plane with Vampires?

Haha, I have no clue, but it looks pretty sweet!

Definitely Coach Carter.

Eve’s Bayou II: The Reckoning.

Is this what Sam Jackson turns in to in the DIE HARD WITH A VEANGEANCE comic sequel, DIED HARD WITH KNOBS ON MY SHOULDERS.

Mini series from Boom called Cold Space.

Sooooo…it’s Sam Jax’s Yojimbo in space?

Alrighty then.

Jumper? Only minus the white hair.

I still think DIE HARD WITH KNOBS ON MY SHOULDERS is a good idea.

That said, this has piqued my interest.

Come on.. it’s The Good The Bad And The Ugly in space.

Weird new trend we’re entering into. Celebrities lending their likeness for new comic book characters. Not sure I like where this is leading, but we’ll see.

Van gogh: where do you see this happening? I only see it in The Boys, Mayhem, and this. I’m probably forgetting a few others, but I’m sure the majority are coincidences or unauthorized likenesses/parodies. I see this one as being acceptible, seeing as how sam J is writing it and all.

Trace Adkins is “Luke McBain”. That’s the most recent example I’ve seen, and I’m sure there are others… that or I’m harping on nothing (which is entirely possible also).

Jackson is a huge comic book fan and a big collector, it is cool to see him get creatively involved in what this medium.

Uh oh, do you think Marvel will sue BOOM! for them putting Ultimate Nick Fury on one of their covers?
