The Biggest Superhero Films That Didn't Happen, Part 2
Comic Books, Film
Called, appropriately enough, ArcanaBenderspink Comics, Deadline reports the label will launch with 20 titles, including Dime Detectives, which recasts authors Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler as real-life crime solvers, Untouchable, which pits the descendents of Al Capone and Elliott Ness against each other, and Langley High, the upcoming conspiracy thriller by Tomm Coker and Daniel Friedman that’s already set up with producer Atlas Entertainment.
Benderspink, which produced the 2005 adaptation of A History of Violence, last year acquired the film rights to Coker and Friedman’s Undying Love and put DC’s The Mighty into motion at Paramount Pictures.
Founded in 2004 by Sean O’Reilly, Arcana has published such titles as Kade, Clockwork Girl, Helen Killer and Gearhead.
