Indie comicbook publisher Radical has inked a unique imprint deal with Full Clip Prods., the company headed by thesp Sam Worthington and brothers Michael and John Schwarz.
Unlike traditional overall deals, the imprint deal allows Full Clip to develop intellectual property to be produced under the Radical banner. As part of the pact, Worthington and John Schwarz will star in select projects.
The first pic in development under the imprint is “Damaged,” which was created by the Schwarzes and revolves around two brothers committed to justice in different ways — one inside the law, one violently beyond it.
The brothers are producing “Damaged” alongside Radical’s Barry Levine. Worthington, a self-described lifelong fan of comics, is exec producing with Radical’s Jesse Berger.
Radical’s development slate includes an adaptation of its soon-to-debut graphic novel “Legends,” which is being produced by Imagine Entertainment. The comicbook company is also adapting “Last Days of American Crime,” with Worthington attached to topline and produce, and the Joe Kosinski-helmed “Oblivion.”
“Avatar” star Worthington recently wrapped “The Fields” for producer Michael Mann and director Ami Canaan Mann. He will next be seen in John Madden’s “The Debt” opposite Helen Mirren.
