Prod'n company finds graphic novel 'Tasty'

Anonymous Content has optioned film rights to “Tasty Bullet,” a yet-to-be-published graphic novel by Jonathan Vankin and Arnold Pander about an insidious energy drink.

Story centers on the beverage children are guzzling worldwide; the young woman whose image promotes the product; and her discovery that the drink is actually brainwashing those consuming it.

The production/management shingle decided to snap up the rights because of the potential mass appeal of a female action hero in a sci-fi setting such as Paramount/MTV’s upcoming “Aeon Flux” and TV skeins such as “Alias” and “Dark Angel.”

Anonymous Content CEO Steve Golin and director of development Chad Hamilton will produce; VP of production Justin Rosenblatt exec produces.

“We see ‘Tasty Bullet’ as a real popcorn type of film and a departure from the quirky kinds of projects we’ve been doing like ‘Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind,’ ” Rosenblatt said.

Vankin is a writer and editor for DC/Vertigo Comics and author of the “Greatest Conspiracies of All Time” series. Pander has an extensive background in comic titles such as “Grendel,” “Exquisite Corpse” and “Triple X.”
