Variety is reporting Platinum Studios, Top Cow Productions, and Arclight Films are teaming up to bring Top Cow’s popular character Witchblade to the big screen. As odd as the team up sounds, here’s how it breaks down:

  • Marc Silvestri and Matt Hawkins of Top Cow and Rich Marincle of Platinum Studios will serve as executive producers
  • Gary Hamilton and Nigel Odell from Arclight, and Scot Mitchell Rosenberg of Platinum Studios will produce
  • The film will more than likely shoot in Australia beginning in September
  • According to the article no director, star, or writer have been attached

With hundreds of issues under the belt, and published in 21 languages and 55 countries, and considering the cult nature the Yancy Butler television series has become, this could be one heck of a movie.

    Somewhere, Uwe Boll’s eye just twitched.

    Uwe Boll does video game movies. But I think his eye twitches anyways as it’s a popular property that could get exploited as well.

    I just hope they stick to the material and not go off on a tangent like the Anime version of the Witchblade did.
