MADMAN ATOMIC COMICSâ€™ Mike Allred andÂ SOUL KISSâ€™ Steven T. Seagle confirmed they did not announce a new project at this year’s Comic Con International during the Mike Allred spotlight panel, citing the sheer number of announcements made at the show this year as reason enough to withhold information.
“We would have been be lost in the shuffle,” Allred said. â€œEspecially since I was already announcing the new graphic novel I am co-editing, ONE MODEL NATION, by writer Courtney Taylor and illustrator Jim Rugg as well my all-new the Vertigo series, I, ZOMBIE. I thought it might be better to just wait until later, and Seagle just kept saying we shouldn’t do it at all.â€

Variety is reporting Dimension Films will be turning Madman into a live action film. Robert Rodriques will produce the film through his Troublemaker Studios, with George Huang directing. Huang will also be sharing writing credits as he will pen the script with Michael Allred – creator of Madman.
The film will also be shot at Rodriquez’s studios in Texas. In the story, the hero is killed in a car accident and brought back to life Frankenstein style, complete with enhanced senses, psychic powers, and exceptional physical skills.
