RM_book3_cvr_lg.gifI’ve just started reading Rex Mundi and it is pretty interesting. The story is set in Paris, where magic is real and the Catholic Church never lost its grip on power. Apparently the characters and stories presented in the graphic novels was enough to attrack the attention of one Johnny Depp who will star and produce the film through his Infinitum Nihil productoin company.

Scribe Jim Uhls, who wrote the screenplay for Fight Club will write the screenplay based on the comic book.

“It’s a noir-ish ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark,’ ” Uhls says. “There are murders and a mystery, and the lead character discovers a massive conspiracy, biblical in its origin.” Though it may sound an awful lot like a “Da Vinci Code” rip-off, Depp will surely sport less offensive hair than Tom Hanks, even if he decides to base this new character on John Lydon (Johnny Rotten).
