Lloyd Levin, the producer behind Watchmen, has nabbed the rights to Terry Moore’s Echo comic book series.

“Echo” tells the story of a photographer who is preoccupied with her personal problems until she gets doused by liquid metal from a military experiment gone awry. She discovers she can now harness the power of a nuclear bomb, and soon the military wants its walking weapon.

With the rights now in hand, finding writers, directors, and actors can begin.

    It was only a matter of time. Echo is the comic book version of a hamfisted Lifetime Network chick flick. It’s a combination of “Must Love Dogs” and every conspiracy tv show or movie you’ve ever seen.

  2. Good Deal! I got to read the first couple of issues of this but then stopped buying everything. I need to pick up the individual issues and catch up, it started off a little odd, but looked like it had promise.

  3. I like Echo. The art is always spot on

    The main character is a female but I never got the Lifetime movie feel from this book. It is very sci-fi and is somewhat derived, but what isn’t.
