We've presented several clips already from an interview with best-selling comics author Grant Morrison conducted by Eisner-nominated writer, musician and producer Percy Carey (a.k.a. MF Grimm), but I feel pretty safe saying that we've saved the best for last. In this final interview segment, Morrison addresses why we haven't seen a movie based on his massively popular, surreal comic book series "The Invisibles" -- and why he thinks it might be better off as a video game instead.
"Yeah, I'd love to see it, but it's not happening anytime soon," said Morrison. "I kind of want to do a different take on it, because obviously when 'The Matrix' came out, it was covering a lot of similar areas. There were bald guys in fetish amounts doing kung-fu."
"We've kind of seen that, so I don't want to go down that road," continued Morrison. "But I came up with a take on 'The Invisibles' that I think is really new, so yeah, it's something I'd like to see done. I'd like to see it as a video game as well, if anything."
Thanks go out to Percy Carey and the great folks at Meltdown Comics, as well as the video team of Milo Popp and Vito Lapiccola of Comics on Comics, the WebTV series where the greatest comic minds meet the greatest minds in comics. Check it out!
