Mandalay sparked to scribe's new take on comicbook

Mandalay Pictures has tapped scribe Nic Kelman to adapt Liquid Comics’ 2006 graphic novel “Ramayan 3392 AD.”

Story is based on an epic Hindu poem about the adventures of legendary blue-skinned warrior Prince Rama, who fights to rescue his wife from a demon king.

Mark Canton is producing with Mandalay prexy Cathy Schulman, while Liquid Comics toppers Gotham Chopra and Sharad Devarajan will exec produce the pic with Atmosphere Entertainment. Former Mandalay exec Scarlett Lacey will also serve in a producing capacity.

John Collee (“Master and Commander”) was originally hired to adapt the comicbook in October 2008, but Mandalay sparked to Kelman’s new take on the material.

Kelman, best known as the author of the bestselling novel “Girls,” sold his sci-fi spec script “Genneris” to DreamWorks in March. He’s repped by CAA and attorney Michael Gendler of Gendler & Kelly.
