Directing and co-producing the comic book adaptation
Variety has confirmed a story that first appeared on Bloody-Disgusting – Battlestar Galactica stalwart Michael Rymer will direct and co-produce Witchblade, a feature film adaptation of the Top Cow comic.
The fantasy involves a jewel-encrusted gauntlet that bestows extraordinary powers upon the possessor, one chosen female from each generation.
Rymer, who has directed 20 episodes of the revived series and produced 40, is filming the Battlestar Galactica series finale. The Australian filmmaker recently wrapped production on Revolution, a two-hour series pilot for NBC Universal Media Studios and the SCI FI Channel.
Witchblade is a co-production of Platinum Studios, Top Cow Productions and Arclight Films.
