Image Comics has recently released the first issue of Lucha Libre, originally from the European publisher Humanoids. That comic is soon to be turned into a motion picture called Luchadores 5, directed by Michael Olmos.
Set in East Los Angeles, it’s a comedy about five Latino wrestlers who form a masked vigilante group to clean up their neighborhood.
The film is expected to start shooting in 2008. This is the first in a 12 picture deal with Humanoids.
