ON

Mandalay Pictures has acquired film rights to the Oni Press graphic novel “Julius,” with F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job, The Negotiator) attached to direct.

Written by Antony Johnston and illustrated by Brett Weldele, “Julius” is a contemporary urban crime adaptation of William Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar.”

Mandalay president Cathy Schulman said that Gray “has a vision for this adaptation that will satirize obsessive consumerism while providing a thrilling ride for audiences.”
