Universal is in negotiations to pick up War Heroes, the project based on the Mark Millar-Tony Harris comic book.

Say what you will about the guy, but he’s definitely beloved amongst Hollywood producers.

Mark Millar’s War Heroes is a six issue mini-series published by Image Comics and illustrated by Tony Harris

The story focus on a group of disenchanted American con artists, who enlist in the military to steal the pills and sell them to foreign investors at $10 million before planning to desert. Initially, however, the con artists had no knowledge of the identity of their clients that they were to sell to until it was revealed to be the terrorist organization, Al-Qaeda. when one of the con artists brothers (a war hero) is taken prisoner in an attack by a super powered member of Al Qaeda, the con artists set about rescuing him from a public execution

Superman fan gets a call from Superman

October 10, 2011

In addition to the 350 some gifts and letters that have been sent to Superman fan Mike Meyer in response to news reports about the theft of his comic book collection, the Granite City man recently got a call that meant more than some.

He picked up the phone last week to hear the voice of “Superman Returns” star Brandon Routh, a 31-year-old actor and former model originally from Norwalk, Iowa. The two talked about — what else — all things Superman for nearly half an hour.

They touched on the making of the “Superman Returns” movie, the theft of Meyer’s collection (which was subsequently returned when police made an arrest in the case), Meyer’s memorabilia collection, scenes from the 2006 movie — which Meyer said he has seen 14 times in movie theaters and many more times on DVD — and past actors who have played the role.

At one point Meyer told Routh that he sounded like the late Bud Collyer, who was the voice of Superman and Clark Kent on radio, film and television in the 1940s and again in the 1960s.
