Life rights to the Tales From the Crypt creator picked up
Joel Eisenberg and his Iron Mountain Media have picked up the life rights to renowned publisher William M. Gaines to co-produce a biopic based on the life of the man who was behind EC Comics’ “Tales From the Crypt” and Mad magazine, says The Hollywood Reporter
“Ghoulishly Yours, William M. Gaines,” which is being written by Eisenberg, will revolve around the banding together of an anti-establishment group of comic book creators, led by a reluctant Gaines, as they produce their controversial yet hugely popular line of comic books like “Crypt.”
Eisenberg wrote the indie thriller Out of the Black and wrote and produced the goth thriller Hollywood Vampyr.
