EXCLUSIVE: ‘Caliber’ Adaptation Won’t Star Johnny Depp, Producers ‘Waiting To Hear From’ John Woo

FROM SPLASH PAGE: Last year, Splash Page had a chance to catch up with Radical Comics president and publisher Barry Levine, who spoke at length about Radical’s “Caliber” — a retelling of the legend of King Arthur set in America’s Wild West era — and how he and “Caliber” scribe, Sam Sarkar, had hoped to convince director John Woo to helm the adaptation.

Since it’s been all quiet on the “Caliber” front since then, we decided to check in with Sarkar to see if there’s been any progress on the flick that, ever since Johnny Depp’s Infinitum Nihil production company (where Sarkar serves as head of development) came onboard, looks to be on the fast track.

“I just finished the adaptation of the screenplay,” Sarkar told MTV News. “Between now and the Cannes Film Festival we’re setting it up.”
