Sony Buys Rights to ‘The Sculptor’ With Scott Rudin Producing

Sony has bought the movie rights to Scott McCloud’s recently published graphic novel “The Sculptor” and set up the project with Scott Rudin and Josh Bratman.

“The Sculptor” centers on a young man who has made a deal with Death to sculpt anything he can imagine with his bare hands. Complications arise when he meets the love of his life with 200 days to live.

McCloud is best known as a theorist, authoring “Understanding Comics” and “Making Comics” along with the “Zot!” series in the 1980s.

“The Sculptor” was published Feb. 3 by First Second Books.

Sony-based Rudin is in production on “Steve Jobs” for Universal and in post-production for Sony’s “Aloha,” starring Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone.

The news was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter.
