Framelight teams on graphic novels

Arcana Studios to co-produce adaptations of 'Arsenal,' 'Frozen Wasteland'

Framelight Prods. and Arcana Studios are teaming to co-produce bigscreen versions of a pair of graphic novels — “El Arsenal” and “Frozen Wasteland.”

Producers are Jeffrey D. Erb and Robert L. Robinson Jr., from Framelight along with Sean O’Reilly from Arcana Studios. They’re in talks with Michael Miner (“Robocop”) to adapt the screenplay for “El Arsenal.”

Created by writer Salvador Vazquez and artist Daniel Perez, “El Arsenal” takes place in the future when the world is on the verge of collapse, nations fight against each other for power and control, and the people suffer from these conflicts. Story focuses on mankind’s best hope, a Mexican mercenary who’s seeking a powerful biological weapon in cockroaches.

In “Frozen Wasteland,” published in 2007, America is covered in snow and rival gangs fight for control in Los Angeles, where law and order has collapsed and the government, stretched thin as it is by troubles elsewhere, is afraid it will lose the city.

Framelight’s planning to go into production later this year on “Deadworld,” written by David Hayter and produced with Bill Mechanic. That project is based on the comicbook series by Gary Reed, published by IDW.
