Yahoo lines up Sonnenfeld, Ritchie

Liquid Comics deal to yield motion comics

Yahoo has lined up digital motion comics from Barry Sonnenfeld and Guy Ritchie through a deal with Liquid Comics.

The helmers will headline the first of two such projects that will unspool on Yahoo Screen beginning this summer, when the portal has teed up another animated project, “Electric City,” from Tom Hanks.

“Barry Sonnenfeld’s: Dinosaurs vs. Aliens” is a motion comic adaptation of Liquid’s upcoming graphic novel created by Sonnenfeld and written by Grant Morrison. “Dinosaurs” follows an alien invasion during the prehistoric era.

“Guy Ritchie’s: Gamekeeper” is based on Liquid’s previous graphic-novel series created by Ritchie and written by Andy Diggle. “Gamekeeper” involves an enigmatic groundsman who fights off mercenaries.
