The town is buzzing about the first rights package that has at least two agencies’ A-list assets in the mix on Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld’s acclaimed comic book IP PROPHET, which is going into all film studio buyers this weekend!
The Tracking Board has confirmed that Prophet has Ridley Scott and Scott Free attached to produce along with EnergyEntertainment’s Brooklyn Weaver. We are also hearing an A-list talent company may be joining the package as producers… more info as soon as it can be confirmed.
The story centers around John Prophet, who submits to a mission to re-set mankind when he and others in The Disciple project awaken 1000 years in Earth’s future. Prophet is isolated and relies on his smarts, training and resourcefulness to navigate the dangerous environments around him. Along the way he will discover the truth behind his mission and the role he is destined to achieve in its re-awakening. There’s huge potential here for a high-concept tentpole franchise, with elements of The Martian, Mad Max and Avatar.
Stay tuned for updates as this hot IP continues to burn across major territories throughout the weekend!
