Word on the street is Samuel L. Jackson is teaming with Indomina Group and Gonzo Studios to produce a live action version of Afro Samurai.
”This has been one of my very favorite properties ever since our amazing debut at Comic-Con with the original series pilot out of Japan,” Jackson said.
Writer and director will be found later this year, with casting complete by year’s end.

For quite some time I have been meaning to combine my interests in comic book heroes, ancient Japanese poetry and strawberry milkshakes. I really couldn’t work the last one in but if you and I are ever at Sonic together remind me to pick some up.
Anyway, here’s some stuff I wrote while I was supposed to be paying attention to a presentation during my day job:
Put Samuel L. Jackson in a RoboCop suit, land him on a distant planet with two rival factions at each other’s throats, crank the Bad-Ass meter to 11, and you’ve got a comic book series that’s begging to be made. Fortunately, Boom! Studios has you covered with the new installment of Cold Space.
It’s a big week for BOOM! Studios as the company is set to unleash 7 Psychopaths #1, The Amory Wars: In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 #1, Coldspace #2, Disney’s Hero Squad Ultraheroes #5, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?: Dust to Dust #1, Incoruptible #6, and Wizards of Mickey #6. BOOM! Studios sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek, that you can check out, after the jump!
Boom! Studios sent us this teaser image for an upcoming series.Â We don’t know any other details, but I wonder if it will be called “Mark Waid is Samuel L. Jackson”?
So any guesses?Â xXx, Jumper, the upcoming adaptation of Unthinkable, Shaft, or something else?
UPDATE: Diligent readers already spoiled the guessing game for everyone else, so…
COLD SPACE #1
From legendary actor Samuel L. Jackson and Emmy nominated writer/producer Eric Calderon, the team that brought you the Emmy-award-winning, best-selling Afro Samurai, comes their next original series Cold Space! When an on-the-run outlaw crash-lands on a hostile planet on the brink of civil war, he finds himself caught in the crossfire between two warring factions. But in chaos lies opportunityâ€¦ because where thereâ€™s war, thereâ€™s money to be made! A hard-boiled sci-fi action-adventure with art by Jeremy Rock and covers by Eisner Award-winning artist Dave Johnson and Irredeemable cover artist, Jeffrey Spokes!
FTR:Â I still like “Mark Waid is Samuel L. Jackson” better…
Do superhumans live among us? Iâ€™m not talking about folks who can run at near-light speed, leap tall buildings without getting a wedgie, or create illusions out of thin air (without the use of sleight-of-hand tricks, I mean. That means youâ€™re out, Chris Angel.). Iâ€™m talking about someone who is naturally above what we consider peak human levels of physical stamina, strength, resistance to injury or disease, etc. Letâ€™s assume there is such a person for argumentâ€™s sake. Would this person know theyâ€™re superhuman, or would they assume they were just a normal human, living out their lives like everyone else? What if one of these people realized they were in fact somethingâ€¦ else? M. Night Shyamalanâ€™s Unbreakable tries to answer these questions, so letâ€™s get to it.
Diamond Select Toys will bring Frank Miller’s interpretation of Will Eisner’s The Spirit characters to Minimate form in 2009.Â The company has announced a four character box set, and a Previews Exclusive two-pack, and Major Spoiler has the pictures and info, after the jump!
