Top Cow has inked another feature film deal, according to word breaking on Deadline late Wednesday, this time it’s a somewhat obscure 2005 miniseries titled Vice.
For this deal, Top Cow is partnering up with Platinum Studios, producers of Cowboys & Aliens, out later this year (and also based on a lesser-known comic book series). Vice, from writer Aron Coleite and artist Tyler Kirkham, told the story of superpowered teen felons working with the FBI as part of a Suicide Squad-esque deal to clear their records. Last summer, the publisher’s Crosshair was also reported as being in development as a film. Andrew Lazar — who recently worked on much-maligned comic book adaptation Jonah Hex — is slated to co-produce along with Platinum chairman/CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, with Top Cow president Matt Hawkins and founder Marc Silvestri executive producing along with Randy Greenberg — if it’s the same Randy Greenberg as this one on IMDb, he’s also working on the Dylan Dog film adaptation.
