Comics From Web To The Silver Screen

Variety reported this week that Platinum Studios' comic Cowboys & Aliens is headed for the movies in a deal with DreamWorks and Universal Pictures along with Imagine
partners Brian Grazer and Ron Howard. I didn't actually think that the comic of Cowboys & Aliens worked that well (just not a very good story, poor characterization and the wrong tone) but the concept is killer and conceivably in the right hands could be a fun popcorn kind of movie.
It's been awhile since I first wrote about this back in May 2003, and it's no longer such a stretch to imagine a webcomic translated to a movie.
