3-D continues its comeback today with the announcement that the Top Cow seres "Aphrodite IX" has been picked up by Threshold Entertainment. First Henry Selick fervently stuck to 3-D for filming Neil Gaiman’s "Coraline,", then the makers of NBC's "Chuck" launched a post-Super Bowl event this year by broadcasting an episode in 3-D -- and now Top Cow’s green-haired femme fatale appears to be next.
"This is just the kind of franchise we love: a visually stunning world, amazing effects, a great story and a hot, kick-ass babe in the lead," Threshold’s Larry Kasanoff told The Hollywood Reporter. "What could be better?"
The series, drawn by big-name artist David Finch and written by "Witchblade" and "The Darkness" co-creator David Wohl, follows an elite android assassin whose memory is wiped at the end of every mission.
Kasanoff, along with Platinum Studios chairman and CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg will produce the film, with Top Cow CEO Marc Silvestri and former Universal Pictures exec Randy Greenberg of the Greenberg Group on as executive producers. Also co-producing are Top Cow president Matt Hawkins and Platinum's Rich Marincic.
Threshold has produced such sci-fi and fantasy projects as "Highlander" star Christopher Lambert’s 1999 film "Beowulf," "Mortal Kombat: Annihilation," and the 1997 "Conan" TV series.
