Wes Craven’s Creating a New Graphic Novel


Film project might follow

Liquid Comics is partnering with writer-director Wes Craven and producer Arnold Rifkin for the first original graphic novel created by Craven.

“I’m thrilled to be working with Liquid Comics and Cheyenne Enterprises on the development of an original idea for both a comic book and for a subsequent film based on it. It’s an idea I’ve been dying to get out there, and working in collaboration with Sharad Devarajan and Arnold Rifkin will be the ideal win/win way to do it,” says Craven.

Details on Craven’s story have not yet been released and Liquid Comics is currently engaged in dialogues with leading creators in the comic book industry to work with Craven on the project.

Liquid plans to launch the story as a four issue comic-book series starting early next year. In addition to print, Liquid will launch a number of digital initiatives allowing Craven’s fans to experience his graphic novel story across a variety of platforms including online or through their iPad, iPhone and other mobile and gaming devices.

Craven has My Soul to Take opening in theaters on October 29.
