Walt Disney Pictures has picked up the movie rights to "Cowboy Ninja Viking," the comic book with a multiple personality twist from writer AJ Lieberman and artist Riley Rossmo.
The Image Comics property's violent nature goes against the grain of Disney's squeaky-clean image! Are we about to see the darker side of the House of Mouse?
"Zombieland" writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, are attached to write the script and co-produce with Mark Gordon and Management 360.
So what is "Cowboy Ninja Viking" about? According to Cowboy Ninja Viking blog spot, it "is the creation of Doctor Sebastian Ghislain, a psychotherapist who recruits Multiple Personality Disorder patients to produce a unit of counter-intelligence agents called Triplets. When they become out of control assassins? That’s when the deadliest Triplet of them all, Cowboy Ninja Viking, is called in to take down his own brethren."
Intriguing and dark! Perfect!

Truth be told, "Silent Hill" was the only videogame franchise that I played from start to finish. So to my discontent, I was letdown by the first "Silent Hill" movie released in 2006 by director Christoph Gans.
Now, "Silent Hill" gets a 3D sequel with help from the "Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D" team. According to the Hollywood Reporter, French producer Samuel Hadida has joined forces with Don Carmody. They recently gave us "Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D."
Michael J. Bassett, the guy who gave us "Deathwatch" and the "Solomon Kane" movies, is set to write and direct the sequel to be called "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D." Lionsgate is set to distribute.
Hadida revealed to THR that, "We have high expectations for this continuation of the franchise with our reunited Silent Hill production team...Michael was our natural choice to write and direct. He understands the genre, is passionate about the Silent Hill franchise, and will bring his considerable action picture skills to a fresh and thrilling insight of the Silent Hill 3D world."
Roger Avary ("Pulp Fiction") wrote the first draft of the sequel centered on Heather Mason, a character from the third video game in the series. This one will be set 17 years after the first film, and will be in 3D of course!
Konami, the gaming company who gave us the "Silent Hill" videogame series, is on board. "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D" is set to shoot in Toronto this year.

Martin Sheen is in final negotiations to play Spidey's father figure, Uncle Ben, in the new Columbia Pictures' reboot of "Spider-Man" according to the Hollywood Reporter. His character arch remains the same -- he and Aunt May raised Peter Parker and his death at the hands of a burglar leads Parker onto the path of heroism.
Sally Field is also in talks to star as Aunt May. If everything lines up, Sheen and Field will join Andrew Garfield (Peter/Spider-Man), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy), and Rhys Ifans who will play the film's unnamed villain.
Director Marc Webb is set to start production in December. My spidey-sense is telling me that both Sheen and Field will come on board!
