Spyglass focuses on ‘Mage’

Scribe Rogers set to adapt comic book

Spyglass Entertainment has committed to make a feature film based on the “Mage” comic book created by Matt Wagner.

Scribe John Rogers, who wrote a draft of the “Jesse James” script set up at Warner Bros., will write the script based on the comic book. Pic will be produced by Andrew Cosby and Ross Richie, along with Spyglass toppers Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum.

Rooted in a contemporary urban setting, “Mage” is the story of an average guy who discovers that he is a major player in the struggle against dark forces. At its heart, the tale subtly deconstructs the protag’s journey, creating a reluctant hero.

Spyglass Derek Evans and Jonathan Glickman brought the project into the company.

Disney-based Spyglass, which earlier in the year produced “The Sixth Sense,” has on tap for 2000 Edward Norton’s directorial debut “Keeping the Faith” and Thomas Dey’s “Shanghai Noon” starring Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson.

Cosby, Richie and Rogers were repped by CAA and attorney Matt Saver of Myman, Abell, Fineman and Greenspan.
