MTV Geek recently caught up with J. Michael Straczynski and inquired about his current project of penning a feature film for Valiant Comics’ Shadowman property. Much like Marvel/Disney and DC Comics/Warner Bros., Valiant is currently looking to explore bringing some of their stable characters to an expansive cinematic universe, focusing first on Bloodshot and Shadowman. Valiant CEO Jason Kothari has stated that “Shadowman is the first in a large slate of film projects that we are developing and funding internally at Valiant.”
At this current rate, MTV reports that the first draft for Shadowman may be submitted as early as this Spring with plans to begin filming in early 2014. The film is currently being produced by Valiant’s Jason Kothari and Dinesh Shamdasani and the Sean Daniel Company’s Daniel and Jason Brown. Straczynski is currently slated to serve as the executive producer.
