John Landis Directing Ghoulishly Yours


John Landis will direct Ghoulishly Yours, William M. Gaines, a biopic based on the life of the publisher of EC Comics and Mad magazine.

Landis will develop the project with Joel Eisenberg, who’s also writing the screenplay.

The film is centered on an anti-establishment group of artists and writers, led by a reluctant Gaines and cohort Al Feldstein, as they produce their comic books. At the peak of his success, Gaines became a First Amendment figurehead due to his unapologetic testimony before a Senate subcommittee investigating juvenile delinquency.
